The former Arsenal and Manchester United striker is currently playing his football in Turkey with Fenerbahce but was heavily linked with a return to England in the summer.

Both Stoke and Palace were said to be keen to do a deal, but the player’s staggering salary, thought to be £240,000 a week, was a huge stumbling block and he stayed in Turkey.

However fresh reports are suggesting that the 33-year-old could be on the move in the January transfer window as he would be willing to take a huge pay cut.

Everton and Middlesbrough have also been linked with a move for the Dutchman so it looks as though a battle for his signature could be on the cards when the window re-opens.
