Real Madrid coach Paul Clement is ready to return to England for a Premier League job.

Real No2 Clement has been linked with the vacant Brighton job, while West Bromwich Albion and Tottenham are still looking to secure new managers.

He said: "I think the time for me to be a manager is soon, it will be soon.

"A few opportunities have come my way. But this is a difficult place to leave.

"It's a great club, a great city, a great tradition and it gives you the opportunity to win. It's nice that I'll always be part of 'the 10th' as well.

"More than likely it will be in England, although if a nice opportunity came up in another country I wouldn't rule it out.

"I've enjoyed working in France and Spain as well."
