Benin Republic international Salomon Junior has revealed he has attracted interest from clubsides in Portugal and Tunisia as well as in Nigeria.

The dependable defender, who played for relegated Bayelsa United last season, said he will decide on his next destination after leaving the relegated club.

"I don't know where I will play yet because I have clubs in Nigeria, Tunisia and Portugal who are interested in signing me. What is certain now is that I won't play for Bayelsa United," Junior said.

On why he won't play for Bayelsa United, the big defender said it will affect his national team place if he featured in the lower division.

"Bayelsa United are relegated. And I have to play in the first division in any country to keep my place in the national team," he explained.

The 29-year-old defender has played for ASPAC Cotonou, ASEC Mimosas (Cote d’Ivoire) and USS Krake.
