American striker Jozy Altidore admits that he would like to try his luck again in the Premier League.

AZ Alkmaar centre-forward Jozy Altidore has suggested that he would consider a move back to the Premier League.

The 23-year-old spent a season in the English top flight with Hull City during the 2010-11 season, but he was only able to score two goals in all competitions.

However, his return of 31 goals for AZ during the most recent campaign has resulted in him being linked with a return to England, and the American has conceded that he would find a concrete offer hard to reject.

"It is a fantastic league, anyone will tell you that," he told NASN. "If you look at everything, the Premier League is probably the biggest league in the world. Everybody knows that and it would be a pleasure to play in a league like that again.

"Some of my performances at Hull were not as bad as people think, some of them were actually pretty good. I don't look back at it as a sad experience. It was a great experience because I got to see what the highest level was like."

Sunderland are believed to be among the clubs that are keen to sign the striker, while Sports Mole recently suggested that he would be a good addition for Crystal Palace.
