​Out of favour Stoke midfielder, Bojan, quickly fell out of Mark Hughes's plans and was loaned out in January to German club Mainz, but the 26-year-old insists he 'cannot wait to get back to playing in the Premier League.'


With the Potters struggling since Bojan's departure from the club - winning only three of fifteen - it seemed a bizarre decision to offload the attacking midfielder mid-season who possesses the ability to turn a game on its head.

The Spanish international has spent time at six clubs across Europe in six years, and with Hughes not closing the door on his future at the bet365 Stadium, he is eager to discover what his next steps are with Stoke City.


He told the ​Independent: "I’m going to enjoy the summer and we’ll see what happens. I have a contract in a club where the fans show me a lot of love and I’m relaxed about my future. I will talk to the club and see what they have to say."


After being shut out by the Potters the 26-year-old could have easily let his shoulders drop, but after helping Mainz stay in the top flight he has seen his time away from England as an experience which will help him grow.

He added: "The experience has been short but very intense. I’m very happy to have learned a new league and played here, living new experiences. I’ve only been here (Mainz) a short time - just over three months really - so the adaptation has needed to be quicker, but I’ve learned a lot about myself as a person."


With Stoke not prepared to facilitate a loan switch to rival clubs in the Premier League, Bojan made the move to the Bundesliga which was his fifth different experience in a European league.


He reflected on his experiences, stating: "Germany is more physical and based around pressing and counter-attacks.

"In England it’s a much faster game, there aren’t many spaces and it’s great for fans. Spain is technically more dominant and the teams like to play.


"Football in general is evolving in every way. In England it’s changing with new coaches coming in. Lots of players want to come to England and obviously coaches too. 


"The beautiful thing about the Premier League is that there are lots of different styles of play and they all have their own successes.


When asked specifically about his future Bojan said: "I just want to get back to Stoke and see what happens, and after the summer I can't wait to get back to playing in the Premier League."
