Standard Liege defender Oguchi Onyewu wants a return to the Premiership. The USA international is off contract in June and has attracted interest from Middlesbrough, Everton and former club Newcastle United.

"My contract will soon end and I do not intend to sign. I've already twice extended my contract and after five years it is time that I look elsewhere," said Gooch.

Het Laatste Nieuws says he will reject an offer from Espanyol to leave himself free for a move to England - either in January or when he comes off contract in June.
