Former Hearts coach Valdas Ivanauskas has severed all ties with club owner Vladimir Romanov.
However, he believes now is the time to move away from the Romanov stable.
"I'm a free man now. I don't work for Mr Romanov so I am free," the 41-year-old told the Edinburgh Evening News. "I think I will be working in another country soon.
"I have interest from other clubs to be either manager or director of football. I would do both because they both interest me. I want to get back into football as soon as possible and I'm waiting for the right team.
"I have experienced being a manager and I think I could cope with either job. I must decide where is best for me."
Asked if he has received notes of interest from clubs in Russia or Germany, Ivanauskas would only say: "It is somewhere in Europe. Russia and Germany are both in Europe."
