Antonio Valencia is said to be interested in a return to English football, reports the Athletic.

The Ecuadorian international departed Old Trafford at the end of last season.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka was brought in as replacement from Crystal Palace, while Valencia joined L.D.U. Quito, but is apparently eager to return to his life back in England.

If the reports are to be believed, the former United man recently signed with British-based agency OmniSports, which could bring him back into the English scene once again.

And the Ecuadorian is said to be so keen to play in England again that he is ready to sign for a Championship side.

Moreover, the right-back himself believes that his body is finally fully fit after struggling for the entirety of his last season at Old Trafford with thigh issues.

Although the 34-year-old has a year left on his current contract with the Ecuadorian club, they are reportedly ready to offload him for a small fee.

It is unknown right now where the former Villareal man would be heading but it seems like the most likely location is the English second division.

No clubs have been named yet but whichever side manages to get him on board will be fortunate to have the former Wigan winger to guide their players with over a decade worth of experience.
