Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster is keen to play in the Premier League but insists he will only move if he is guaranteed regular first-team football.
The 24-year-old has impressed with his performances for Celtic, playing a key role in their successful UEFA Champions League run this season, to prompt speculation he could move south of the border in the summer.
Forster arrived at Parkhead on a permanent deal last August after spending two seasons on loan in Glasgow from boyhood club Newcastle, where he did not make a first-team appearance.
The 6 ft 7 inch keeper, who is contracted at Celtic until 2016, says he would not settle for sitting on the bench should he return to English football.
"With the quality of the players we've got in the squad, a lot of them will move on at some stage and I'm no different," he told The Times.
"I've always wanted to play in the Premier League and hopefully I'll get the chance to do that.
"For me, I need to be playing. I'd be a nightmare as a No.2 goalkeeper because I want to play so much. It's important that I'm a No.1 and I won't be leaving to go and sit on a bench somewhere."
Forster admits it is difficult for goalkeepers to get a chance in the Premier League but knows one move can trigger a domino effect.
"It's tough for goalkeepers as there are only 20 in the Premier League and some of those clubs have great keepers as well," he said.
"Some years you find that a few goalkeepers move on and that can start off a chain reaction. But other years not a single keeper moves and nothing opens up."
