Former West Bromwich Albion captain Jonas Olsson has confirmed to the Swedish media foreign clubs have been showing an interest in him.

The Swede was linked with a move to Ipswich Town in the last summer transfer window, after Mick McCarthy travelled to Sweden to watch the Djurgården player.

Speaking to Fotbol Direkt, Olsson was asked about the interest from clubs abroad: “Yes, there was interest. At the same time, I feel that my future is here in Djurgården. I’m at an age where it’s not a good time to break everything up and move again.”

McCarthy attended the game between Djurgården and Halmstad at the Tele2 Arena last July, with claims in the Swedish media the Ipswich Town boss was casting an eye on Olsson.

The player refused to comment whether he would be heading back to England, following his time with West Brom.

Olsson spent eight seasons at West Brom after joining the club from Dutch side NEC in 2008. However, the 33 year old was reduced to handful of games in the first half of last season by then West Brom manager Tony Pulis, which ultimately signalled the end of the player’s time at the Hawthorns.
