Former Wigan defender Steve Gohouri would consider a return to the Premier League.

The 31 year old full-back currently plays for Israeli side Maccabi Tel Aviv but has been linked with a move to relegation threatened Reading or Southampton.

The player fell out of favour with Latics boss Roberto Martinez and was released last summer when his contract expired.

"I've always loved the Premier League, the fans and the stadiums are great," said the Ivory Coast international.

"At the moment I feel well in Israel but you never know.

"I have great memories at Wigan, where we had a brilliant chairman. My first year was fantastic, the second year was a bit difficult, but I love the life there."
