Jose Goncalves - who was offered a new contract at Hearts but turned it down - has revealed he is weighing up options in the Barclays Premier League and the Spanish Primera Liga.

The 24-year-old defender, who has been linked with Wigan, said: "I will know in the next week; things are moving forward.

"I will be in England or Spain. I have options in the Premier League and La Liga. I think the Premier League is the best league in the world.

"The club in England is not a newly-promoted team. Every year in the Premier League, they are doing very well and I think it's a good option. I have discussed a contract with them and we just need to discuss the small stuff and see if everything can work out like we want.

"I said before that I would like to stay in Scotland but, if I stay, it's only for Rangers or Celtic. I had some contact with one of them before so it's possible, but my main two options are England and Spain."
