Midfielder Tom Soares would like to come back to Scotland after his loan stint at Hibs ended.
The Englishman has been released by Stoke City after failing to break into Tony Pulis’ team.
Soares, 25, felt his spell on loan at Easter Road went well but said he is going to rush into a move back to the capital.
He told the Edinburgh Evening News: “I don’t want to rush into anything, I need to be sure that wherever I go it is the right move for me.
“The stage of my career that I am at, I think my next move is going to be my most important. It’s just a case of waiting now and seeing what option is going to be the best one for me.”
Soares moved to the Potteries from Crystal Palace for £1.25m in 2008 but failed to make an impression, making just seven appearances for the team.
Now he is targeting regular first team football from his next move.
He said: “If [Hibs] were to get in contact with me then it would be something that I would definitely think about. I enjoyed my time there and my main priority now is making sure that I am back playing regularly with the right club, enjoying my football again.
“It all depends on what clubs come in for me and what I think would be beneficial for myself, but I enjoyed my time in Scotland, it is a beautiful country.”
