No Average Joe
Joe Allen is expected to make a decision on a new club next week.
The Wales midfielder, 32, is leaving Stoke on a free transfer after six years with the Potters after joining Liverpool for £13million.
Allen has a number of offers with former club Swansea keen to bring him back to the Liberty Stadium.
Stoke offered a new contract with less money, but Allen declined to assess all of his options.
He left the South Wales club in 2012 to join Brendan Rodgers at Anfield in a £15m deal.
The 72-cap ace will make a decision when he returns from his playoff vacation after playing for Wales.
Allen helped the Dragons qualify for their first World Cup in 64 years in the 1-0 triumph over war-torn Ukraine on June 5.
It was a match watched by Swansea boss Russell Martin who was impressed with his display in the Welsh capital.
Allen started his career under Roberto Martinez at Swansea in 2007 and is said to be keen on a return.
But the Championship club need to offload players to raise the necessary funds to fund any deal.
Allen, who has already appeared in two European Championship finals, then featured against Belgium in the 1-1 Nations League draw six days later but limped off with a hamstring injury.
Wales boss Robert Page deemed it a minor injury and Allen will be ready for pre-season whenever he decides to go.
