Lyon and France goalkeeper Gregory Coupet admits he could retire after Euro 2008 if he cannot find a new club.
The 35-year-old played his last game for Lyon in Saturday's Coupe de France final victory over Paris Saint Germain and is now searching for a fresh challenge.
Coupet is believed to be a target of Tottenham and has admitted an interest in a move abroad, but the shot-stopper insists he has not been contacted by any prospective new employer.
And Coupet has suggested he could hang up his gloves after participating with France in Austria and Switzerland this summer.
"I can swear that, currently, I have had no contact with any club," Coupet told L'Equipe.
"I have signed nothing and I have nothing planned. It is just a personal decision so far, a family decision.
"I have the idea of a two-year adventure abroad. I do not rule out Spain or Germany.
"If I can't find a new club, frankly I am keen to end my career."
