Sol Campbell has left Newcastle after his one-year contract expired so is now a free agent and is considering his options. The 36-year-old would like to sign a deal before the start of July, he may start pre-season training with a local club until he makes a decision.
"I'll do a pre-season with a London club - I'm not allowed to go anywhere else!" he told Sky Sports News.
"I'd like to join someone by the beginning of July, to join up with the lads wherever I am."
Asked if any Premier League clubs had been in contact, he replied: "There's been a couple so we'll see."
"I love playing football and that's what it's all about," he added.
"I'll play another couple of years, a year - it depends on the manager and how you fit in really.
"I'm not going to play just for playing's sake - I've got to really enjoy it.
"I think a lot of players now are looking after their body's well.
"Maybe 10 years ago, 30-year-olds might be saying 'I've had enough'.
"But now, especially with goalkeepers and players who have really looked after themselves - 35-plus, it's not a problem."
