Former Manchester City defender Javan Vidal is mulling over offers from several clubs as he aims to kick-start his career.
The highly-rated full-back left the Premier League outfit at the end of last season after making just one first-team appearance.
However, the 22-year-old revealed to skysports.com that he is currently in talks with several clubs from England, Scotland and abroad.
"I'm in negotiations with two clubs at the minute that I can name and a few others that I can't disclose, so interest has started to pick up a little," he said.
"I'm talking to Hibernian from the SPL and a team in Turkey called Denizlispor, but there are a few League One clubs as well, but I can't name them at the moment.
"I'd be welcome to any offers to be honest because it is all about getting out there and playing regular football again."
Vidal impressed during loan spells at Grimsby, Aberdeen and Chesterfield whilst at Manchester City and he has been working hard over the summer to make sure he is not too far behind in terms of match fitness for when he joins a new club.
He added: "I've been doing my own fitness work over the summer and although it isn't quite the same as doing it with a club, I'm pretty confident that once I've joined a new club I'll be close to challenging for a first-team place.
"I've not had much game time, but the only way to increase that is through competitive matches, so hopefully I can get up to speed in no time."
