Laurent Depoitre became a Huddersfield Town hero when his goal against Chelsea last season helped them stay in the Premier League.

However, the 30-year-old has failed to find the back of the next this term and the Terriers’ struggles have resulted them being relegated to the Championship.

The forward’s contract at the Kirklees Stadium will expire after this season and he will leave the club as a free agent.

Depoitre gave a lengthy interview to Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws and the initial few questions were related to his future beyond this season.

The former Porto man does not hesitate to reveal the type of project he is looking at, while making sure that he does not close door on any of the potential options, which include even a move away from Europe.

“A sportingly interesting club, plus a nice salary would be the best. Maybe I will stay in England,” explained Depoitre.

“I choose a good team from the Championship where I can play a lot – I like the football and I feel It could just as well be a completely different championship, as I am aware that this may be my last long-term contract, which means that the financial side will also play an important role.

“It’s a cliché, but a football career is short. And only since I was 25, when I signed with AA Gent, do I earn well.”

He was further asked ‘you don’t say no to China, the MLS or the Middle East?’

The Huddersfield player said: “I have it (enthusiasm) for the United States. That would be really great. I have been there several times already.

“Ah, I am open to everything. Also, for China, yes. Why not? It’s not my priority, but if you get a proposal like this, do you think about it, even though it is a totally different culture and you don’t really know what to expect? I just have to weigh the pros and cons if the interest becomes concrete.”

Depoitre also gives an insight on what happened after Huddersfield avoided relegation last season following a 1-1 draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

“With Huddersfield it was fantastic too, we normally had to take the plane back after the draw against Chelsea, but the trainer [David Wagner] said, ‘We’re canceling that flight and going to a disco here’,” the Belgian revealed.

“You should have seen that – with the entire team – all in our training gear – to the Libertine, a well-known nightclub in London – we partied there until six in the morning, because since we hadn’t booked a hotel, we had to wait for the first train to Huddersfield. You will never forget something like that.”
