Jonathan Tah's €18 million release clause expired at the end of June, but that doesn't necessarily mean he will remain at Bayer Leverkusen.

In an interview with Bild, the centre-back made no secret of the fact that he's looking for a new challenge.

"The market is still open, anything can happen. Of course I'm aware of what I have here. I appreciate it very much. But I am also open to other things," Tah told Bild.

"The club and I have always communicated openly and very well. We will see what happens in the next few weeks."

The German centre-back's dream destination remains the Premier League.

"I've attracted interest from elsewhere, but it has always been my goal to play in the Premier League because I think it is the best league in the world. And to play at that level is obviously attractive to me.

"I'm 27 now, I've been here for many years and I've developed. I have the feeling that maybe if I go to another league, I can take another step forward in my personal development".
