Hibernian's on-loan striker Darryl Duffy is uncertain where his long-term future lies, with parent club Bristol Rovers looking for a new permanent manager.
Duffy has been on loan at the Scottish Premier League club since August, but injuries have hampered his time with the Edinburgh outfit, limiting him to just nine appearances.
His contract at Bristol Rovers runs out this summer and with the club under new leadership, caretaker boss Stuart Campbell having taken the reins for the rest of the season, Duffy does not know what to expect.
He has told skysports.com that he does not mind staying in Scotland permanently, but at the same time loves the English game.
"I've no idea to be honest because I had no contact with Dave Penney when he was manager there and I played alongside Campbs (Campbell) for two years, but he is manager now and I've not heard from him since he was appointed," he said.
"Going by that then probably nothing has changed, but you never know in football.
Open to anything
"I'd be happy playing anywhere to be honest, whether it be in England or Scotland, but when I originally joined Hibs I was working for a manager that knew all about me and I knew all about him having worked with him before.
"It was the ideal move for me at the time because I knew that I'd be given a fair chance under him, but I broke my foot before I could make my debut and by the time I got back to full fitness he had left the club.
"It has been one of those seasons where nothing has gone right for me, but I'm open to returning to England this summer because I've played most of my career down there and loved every minute of it.
"I'm Scottish though, so staying in Scotland would be just as good, but it all depends what offers come my way this summer really.
"Hopefully, I can get back into the first team soon because if I can do that and grab a few goals before the end of the season it will get people interested and listening again with my contract up in the summer."
