Ernesto Valverde is said to prefer a move to Australia's A-League over the Premier League.

"People ask me sometimes: 'How about the Premier League?' and I say: 'Well actually I'd like to go to Australia. A career in football does not last forever and sometimes you think you have to take the opportunity to live in strange places," said Valverde.

Valverde also said he's interested in a move to Japan.

"I applauded Andres when he told me he was going to Japan. I thought: 'Wow, he gets to understand a different culture and different people,' and I am also very interested in Japan," added Valverde.
