Burnley have joined Birmingham City in the pursuit of veteran defender Bobo Balde.
The 33-year-old Guinea international has already been offered a trial by the Blues before their fellow Premier League new-boys joined the hunt with a contract offer.
"I have an offer of a trial with Birmingham. They have asked me to join them for pre-season when they return on July 8," said Balde.
"The club have already told me there will be a two-year contract on the table for me if I do well and impress during my trial period.
"Burnley have also made me an offer, but unconditionally.
"I will have to have a think about things before I decide my future.
"My career is changing in such a way that I must accept the situation.
"I am 33, I have not played much over the last 12 months and I am not in a position of strength.
"When a player is inactive, they lose the rhythm and habit of duels. This is my case and I must accept it."
Balde brought the curtain down on his eight-year spell at Celtic last month following a season which was spent largely on the sidelines.
