Mark de Vries is unsure where his future lies after returning to Leicester City.
Leicester City striker Mark de Vries says he will consider his future over the summer after refusing a permanent move to Heerenveen.
The Dutch striker spent the second half of last season on loan at the Eredivisie outfit, who confirmed on Tuesday that they would not be using the option to sign him on a permanent basis.
De Vries is now expected to be back training with Leicester when they begin pre-season on July 3 but admits he is usure whether he will still be at The Walkers Stadium when the season starts in August.
"I will have to wait and see what happens," de Vries told De Telegraaf.
"There should be interest from other clubs, maybe a permanent or loan move will be possible."
The former Hearts front-man was given relatively few opportunities while at Heerenveen, but still managed to bag three goals in nine appearances.
Despite having the option to stay in Holland, de Vries turned the offer down and has since revealed his disappointment at the lack of chances at the club.
"The coach told me he preferred to use other players," he added.
"I could have stayed with Heerenveen but when I heard the club wanted to use me as a pinch-hitter I decided to leave."
