Former Ghana captain Stephen Appiah says he will extend his stay at Vojvodina as a sign of appreciation.
The 31-year-old saw his dwindling club career revived in Serbia after the Novi Sad-based club offered him a short term contract at a time no one else seemed to be interested.
The former Juventus ace made most of his time in the Serbian top flight where he helped Vovojdina to a Europa League spot finish.
His goal on the final day against Red Star was even adjudged the club’s best at the end of the campaign and is now being courted by several clubs including Vojvodina who are desperate to keep him.
But Appiah though open to the offers say he will take the Novi Sad side’s gamble on him into serious considering and thus will extend his stay until such a time he makes a definite decision over his future.
“I signed a four-month contract with Vojvodina and things went so well beyound my expectations,” he told Accra-based Asempa FM.
“I enjoyed my football and they were also very happy with me but my contract has ended.
“And the President (of Vojvodina) is even looking for a way to smuggle me back to Serbia because there are other offers.
“But because of what they did for me, I told the President I am willing to play in the playoffs and if after that time the other offers are gone then I will stay.”
Appiah quit international football in 2010 after leading Ghana to two consecutive World Cup finals.
