Former West Bromwich Albion striker Nicholas Anelka says he does not intend to join a new club before the end of the season.

Nicholas Anelka has said that he does not intend to join a new club before the end of the season.

The 35-year-old had his contract at West Bromwich Albion terminated last month and has been without a team since following a five-game ban handed to him by the Football Association for his controversial 'quenelle' gesture.

"I am not specifically looking for a club but I am receiving offers and the least I can do is check them," he is quoted as saying by French newspaper Metro.

"I haven't decided anything yet. My contract with WBA officially ended on 29 March and bar a miracle, there won't be any new challenge before the next season starts, be it in Europe or in a exotic country.

"I want to play football like when I was young, connect myself again with the love for the game of my debut."

Anelka has previously had spells at Premier League clubs Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Bolton Wanderers, Manchester City and West Bromwich Albion.
