Aston Villa defender Ron Vlaar has hinted that he would be open to a move away from Villa Park.
The 30-year-old is out of contract this summer, and the Midlands outfit have confirmed that they have offered the Netherlands international a new deal.
Vlaar has been linked with a switch to Manchester United, where he would team up with his former national team boss Louis van Gaal.
When asked about his future at Villa, Vlaar told the Daily Star: "I want to maximise my career and I think I can go a step higher.
"I will look at it and go quietly."
Vlaar has made 88 appearances for Villa since joining from Feyenoord in 2012.
