However, the former Chelsea player’s deal at the Riverside runs down at the end of June and ESPN FC believe he will return to the Premier League.

A source close to the Middlesbrough midfielder revealed that Mikel is mulling over several offers from top-flight clubs, including newly promoted sides Norwich City and Sheffield United.

“There are some options right now, and a few more we expect to see over the coming days,” the source said.

“Once all the options are on the table, he will make a decision.”

The 32-year-old is expected to lead the Super Eagles to the Nations Cup this summer and looks set to join a new club before the tournament kicks off on June 21.

“He will most likely make the decision before the finals, although that will depend on what is on the table,” the source added.
