FORMER Leeds and Portsmouth goalkeeper Jamie Ashdown is considering a move to Brunei after missing out on a possible deal with Crystal Palace, Eurosport website reported.
Ashdown, 34, who left Sky Bet League One side Crawley by mutual consent in November, was ap-proached by former Palace manager Neil Warnock in December, but his sacking at the end of last month scuppered any chance of a reunion with the former Leeds boss.
“It is very flattering to think that I have stayed in the minds of my old coaches and that was the same with Crystal Palace,” Ashdown told Press Association Sport.
“Neil called me at the start of December and said about going in for a week at the start of January. So nat-urally I was pretty gutted to see the news after Christmas.”
Ashdown, who started out at Reading, is currently in south-east Asia with a view to a possible move to Brunei Premier League side DPMM FC.
“I heard from another old Reading colleague before Christmas and he was saying that my old under-19s coach, Steve Kean, was looking to get me over to Brunei and see DPMM FC,” Ashdown added.
“Obviously you hear a lot of rumours but I was delighted when I had a phone call asking me to visit the club, have a look around and see if it was a move I would consider.
“I’ve since had conversations with Joe Gamble, who I also played with at Reading, as he is over there so it would be great to link back up with him.”
