Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt has revealed a number of clubs around Europe have enquired about signing him this summer but admitted he would not be returning to Feyenoord just yet.
Kuyt struggled to hold down a place in the Liverpool first-team under former manager Kenny Dalglish and appears resigned to leaving after six years at Anfield.
The Dutch international was signed from Feyenoord by Rafael Benitez and went on to make 207 appearances for the club, scoring 51 goals.
But Kuyt is expected to leave after this summer's Euro 2012 tournament and has already fielded a number of enquiries from across Europe's major leagues.
"There are many clubs who are interested," Kuyt is quoted in the Daily Mail. "Not only from England, also from Germany, Spain and Italy."
"I have had several conversations with Feyenoord but we were unable to agree," he added.
"I did not want on my conscience that Feyenoord would have financial problems because of my salary.
"There were too many doubts on both sides. I've thought about it, but it is not the time to return."
Meanwhile, Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers is poised to assume the vacant Liverpool manager's job after the club's owners began talks on Wednesday afternoon.
Rodgers will reportedly be installed as the new manager within 48 hours, after he usurped Wigan's Roberto Martinez as the favourite to assume the Anfield hot-seat.
But ex-Swansea player Wyndham Evans has condemned Liverpool's approach for Rodgers, after he initially ruled himself out of the running.
"Brendan has said in fairness he has not been interviewed by Liverpool. Where the speculation is coming from we don't know," Evans told the BBC.
"It's all coming from the Liverpool end and apparently Liverpool are announcing their manager on Friday.
"That will be interesting to say the least considering Brendan hasn't had an interview."
