Fenerbahce striker Robin van Persie opens door to Premier League return

Fenerbahce striker Robin van Persie admits a return to England could be on.

The former Manchester United and Arsenal star has been linked with former club Feyenoord.

But he says if he is to leave Fener, it's likely to return to England due to his kids.

"We've moved around in recent years and that suits me very well. Over the years I have seen that you cannot really plan your career. You have to take it as it comes. There are all kinds of things in your path and you accept it or not.

"That's how I will approach the last few years. I'm open to everything. I'm thirteen years away from the Netherlands and that suits me fine," Van Persie told Feyenoord TV.

"Whether it's in England, Turkey or wherever. The kids are involved. They are even more English than Dutch because they grew up there. There comes a time when they also get a bigger say in where they'd like to live and be."
