Silvestre eyes English return

Mikael Silvestre could move back to England after leaving MLS outfit Portland Timbers.

The 36-year-old joined Portland last year, but he managed just eight games for the club with much of his time in USA being beset with injury.

Now reports claim that the likes of Watford, Brentford and Blackpool are said to be keen on the former Manchester United and Arsenal star.

"Mikael has attracted a lot of interest since leaving Portland and we are currently in discussions with a number of clubs in the UK and MLS," his agent Gordon Reid told Sky Sports.

"Mikael is fully fit and would be an asset to anyone with the experience he has."
