Michael Mancienne is considering his options at Hamburg.
The former Chelsea defender has been linked with a return to England after HSV's relegation.
Mancienne admits he wants to be playing regularly after injuries forced him to the sidelines last season as HSV failed to beat the drop.
The 26 year-old is interesting several English clubs, but feels he owes coach Mirko Slomka after the way he was supported last season.
"I want to in the first team. That's my goal," he told the Hamburger Morgenpost.
