Alan Shearer has declared his interest in returning to management following his brief spell at the helm of Newcastle United last season.
The former England striker turned television pundit was unable to save the Magpies from relegation to the Championship during the final eight games of last season.
However, Shearer is now ready to return to management and not necessarily with his hometown club.
"I would still like to be the manager of Newcastle again one day. If the situation came around and everything was right and in place then without a doubt I would love to give it another go. But that's not up to me," he told the Sunday Mirror.
"It's not just a job at Newcastle, though, because if the right post came along somewhere else I would definitely look at it too.
"I would love to go back (to Newcastle) but let's make this clear: I'm not connected to any bids. And nobody has said to me, 'If I get in and buy the football club I want you to be the manager'."
