Former France international, Youri Djorkaeff has hinted that he may be persuaded to extend his current deal with Bolton Wanderers and stay at the Reebok Stadium for another year.
The World Cup winner joined the Premiership outfit on loan in January 2002 and after helping them to avoid relegation signed a two-year contract.
It was expected that when that deal runs out in the summer Djorkaeff would move or possibly retire but now he has suggested he could stay on.
“When I am asked whether I will put an end to my career in June, I am unable to answer that question,” said the highly experienced midfielder.
“As far as pleasure, intensity and motivation go, I still have them all.
“The crucial thing is training. I travel for 40 minutes to get there and that never bothers me.
“If one day I get annoyed with the trip then maybe it will be over.”
The former Paris Saint-Germain and inter Milan star explained how he was enjoying his responsibilities at Bolton along with his relationship with manager Sam Allardyce which could inspire him to sign up for another 12 months.
He added: “Bolton chairman Phil Gartside and manager Sam Allardyce want me to stay for one more year.
“I have not said yes yet but I am tempted because I still love football.
“And here I am told that they need me, my involvement is every day. I have to be an example.”
