Spanish ace Martinez is a free agent after turning down a new deal on lower terms to stay at Blackpool.

Martinez joined Blackpool in the summer of 2011 from Girona and quickly established himself as a key member of Ian Holloway's side.

The 28-year-old is training at former club Girona as he looks to maintain his fitness ahead of fixing himself up at a new club.

Martinez is believed to be keen on staying in the UK and a number of Championship and Spanish clubs are understood to be weighing up offers for the midfielder who is also a target for several clubs in his homeland.

"I was sad to leave Blackpool as I enjoyed my time at the club, but they made it impossible for me to sign a new deal as they offered me a deal which was 60 per cent less than my previous deal," Martinez told Sky Sports.

"I would like to stay in England as I really enjoy playing there and I am thankful to Girona for letting me train there while I sort out my future.

"I have had offers from England and Spain and I will now weigh up my options before deciding where is best to continue my career."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
