Demba Ba has told Sky Sports that he is still confident he can secure a move to the Premier League.
The Senegalese international saw a move to Stoke City collapse after he failed a medical last week.
Stoke remain keen on a potential loan deal, whilst West Ham are also still believed to be interested.
Ba was surprised he failed his medical at The Britannia Stadium.
"Unfortunately they didn't want to take a risk, it wasn't that much but they were a little afraid and they just said it wasn't going to happen," Ba told Sky Sports News.
"I was really surprised and I thought I would pass the medical easily as I played all the games in the first half of the season, but this is football."
Ba says there are other clubs looking to sign him.
"I know my club Hoffenheim are dealing with clubs in the Premier League and I am just waiting to see now but I know I can play for the rest of my career without much of a problem," he said.
