Sturridge, who was heavily linked with a return to Villa in January and the previous summer, told Sky Sports: “We have options all over the world, but I’m an English player and have always loved playing Premier League.

“I think I have a lot to give to the Premier League and I would say it’s my first choice. I feel like I have unfinished business so I would like to go back and play it.
“I’m open to playing in other leagues, it’s not just the Premier League that I’m going to consider but coming back to England and giving my best would be a huge option for me.
“I’m very excited, I’m hungrier than ever and I’m totally focused on the next chapter. ”
Villa was touted of a € 5million transfer to Sturridge as recently as January, as Dean Smith looked to replace injured Wesley and outgoing Jonathan Kodjia.
In the end, Villa signed Mbwana Samatta and Borja Baston, the latter having played for 16 minutes before the start before the restart of the last quarter.
Villa remains in the market for a forward and a move for Sturridge seems incredibly unlikely given his age, form and severe injury issues.
The former England striker added: “I would like to think I am one of the best options for teams.
“I’m a free agent and have played for a lot of big clubs around the world. I’m just ready to help a team be successful and be a big part of their plans.
“I think there is a lot left in those legs. Even though I’ve been here for a long time I would say there are miles on the odometer, but this vehicle still has plenty. ”
During his seven-month stint in Turkey, Sturridge scored seven and assisted four in just 16 appearances.
