Reported Dynamo Kiev target Niko Kranjcar has suggested he could leave Tottenham this summer after admitting he would be keen on a move to Ukraine or Russia.
The midfielder has another year left to run on his contract at White Hart Lane but has found playing time limited this season, with injury cutting his campaign short.
Ukrainian club Kiev are thought to be targeting the Croatia international's signature and 27-year-old Kranjcar admits a move to Eastern Europe would be an attractive prospect.
"Yes, why not?" he told Index. "But conditions would have to be good.
"I'm a realist. In Russia or Ukraine you can play good football and earn a lot of money.
"Whether you agree with me or not, it's important how much you earn in your career."
Kranjcar, who joined Spurs from Portsmouth in 2009, feels football in Eastern Europe is improving and pointed out he could still play European football at a Russian or Ukrainian club.
"Times have changed, the East is becoming better and better," he added.
"It's not like 10 years ago. Clubs from Ukraine and Russia regularly play in the Champions League and Europa League."
