The 30-year old French-born Ivory Coast international, who had a short stint with Arsenal in 2000, is available as a free agent and insists that he would love to come back to England.
"My wish is to go back to England and I would like to play in the Premier League," Demel told skysports.com.
"I have instructed my agent Willie McKay to find me a club in England and I know he is speaking to some interested clubs.
"I used to play at Arsenal but that was a long time ago and I am ready to go back.
"I am more experienced now and my desire is to return to England.
"I have played six years at Hamburg and had a good time there but I feel the time is right for a new challenge.
"Every player would like the opportunity to play in the Premier League where every weekend you play against top players and top teams and this is what I want.
"A lot of my Ivory Coast team-mates tell me how good it is play in the Premier League and it would be nice to play alongside them or against them."
