Cheltenham forward Lloyd Owusu has confirmed he's mulling over a two-year contract offer from Adelaide United.

“I’ve spoken to Martin Allen (Cheltenham manager) and he was full of praise for me,” Owusu told The Argus. “He said he would like to keep me at Cheltenham if he could but the club may not be able to afford it.

“I've been offered a two-year deal by Adelaide, so that is something I am mulling over. Obviously it is far away but I have got to look at longevity now.

“They wanted me on trial originally but they have done their homework on me and now they want me to lead them forward.

“They are in the Asian Champions League next season, so that is a massive factor. If I did decide to go out there I would be playing in front of 40 to 50,000 people in Japan which would be nice, especially coming towards the end of my career.

"I don't want to be waiting until the end of June, when a lot of deals are done. I would rather strike while the iron is hot.

"A lot of players are being released now and a lot of clubs will be waiting until the last minute, so that they can try to get players on the cheap. I want to try and get something sorted."
