The Nigerian midfielder has disclosed he is open to return to England after holding sway for Premier League club Chelsea in the past.
The former Super Eagles captain is currently without a club after parting ways with Turkish Super Lig side Trabzonspor by mutual agreement in March.
Before his departure from the Medical Park Stadyumu, the 33-year-old made 27 appearances for the Black Sea Storm across all competitions.
The midfielder has been linked to newly-promoted Premier League side West Bromwich Albion and Championship club Stoke City.
“Yes, there are interested clubs and England is a strong possibility and why not,” Mikel told BBC Sport.
“We are currently in talks with clubs and there is absolutely no hurry. I can only wait to see what happens.”
