Eduardo says he is happy to have been linked with a return to the Premier League, but the former Arsenal striker is unaware of any interest from Fulham.

Reports had claimed that Fulham were lining up a £7million bid for the Croatia international as a possible replacement for the wantaway Clint Dempsey.

The 29-year-old is currently with Ukrainian club Shakhtar Donetsk and says he has not been contacted about a possible move to Craven Cottage.

"No-one else has contacted me or asked for an opinion," Eduardo told Sportske Novosti.

"You know how it goes with transfers, I learned that even at Dinamo (Zagreb).

"Someone asks the club about me, that club then gets mentioned and immediately it's a done deal.

"Of course it's nice to hear that I'm mentioned in England, especially if there's Premier League interest."

Eduardo, the Brazilian-born forward who is Croatia's second all-time leading scorer, netted only eight goals in 41 appearances for Arsenal.

He was sidelined for a year after suffering a broken left fibula and dislocation of his left ankle following a controversial tackle by Birmingham City's Martin Taylor in February 2008.
