Tim Howard has hinted he hopes to close his career in Everton colours.

When asked whether he could see himself returning to the MLS, where he began his career, the 35-year-old admitted it was unlikely.

"For me, I think the MLS ship has sailed," Howard told SB Nation, "I signed a new four-year contract with Everton.

"If you cut me open, I bleed blue and I want to finish my career there. I can't foresee myself coming back. I think there was probably a chance before I signed the contract, but not anymore."
