New York Red Bulls new boy Tim Cahill has not ruled out returning to former club Everton on loan when the Major League Soccer campaign comes to an end, should he be given consent from his new club.
Several MLS stars have taken the opportunity to join European clubs during the MLS off-season in efforts to keep their fitness. David Beckham completed two loan spells at AC Milan (2009, 2010), while Robbie Keane and Landon Donovan enjoyed healthy stints at Aston Villa and Everton respectively.
Although focused on getting off to a good start with his new club, Cahill remained open to the possibility of a future return, the Independent report. "I'm totally focusing on the Red Bulls - getting fit, giving everything I can for the next three to four months.
"If something can work and fit to the training regime, because I've committed my future to the Red Bulls, and going on loan might not be the right thing for the football club,” Cahill said.
“But if it works out that I can find the right happy medium to get the fitness and keep training and to play in certain games, then maybe yes.
"But I really think in the next three of four months we'll be able to tell closer to the end of the season."
Cahill was presented by the New York Red Bulls yesterday, after competing his move to the MLS club last week after eight years at Everton.
