Malian midfielder Mohamed Sissoko is looking to return to the Premier League by earning himself a contract with West Bromwich Albion.
The 31-year-old, who played in England’s top flight with Liverpool from 2005 to 2008, is currently on trial with the Baggies after a spell in China with Shanghai Shenua.
As he is currently a free agent, Sissoko would be allowed to sign a contract with any club despite the transfer window having closed last week.
And the Malian’s chances are looking good, having impressed manager Tony Pulis in a friendly between West Brom and Delhi Dynamos this past weekend.
"I feel good. I was really happy to play for 60 minutes at The Hawthorns and I am confident I can do well here," Sissoko told Sky Sports News HQ.
“It's been a long time since I left England. I'll be here with West Brom this week and we'll see what happens after that.
“The manager has told me just to come and enjoy it and then we'll sit down and talk about my future.
“But I'm really happy to be back with a club in one of the best leagues in the world and I hope I can stay here."
