Chelsea legend Didier Drogba says he would be "honoured" to return to the Premier League on loan, but has played down the likelihood of a move this season.

The veteran striker left English champions Chelsea at the end of last term to join MLS outfit Montreal Impact, for whom he has scored 12 times in 14 appearances so far.

The likes of Robbie Keane and Landon Donovan have previously opted for short spells back in England's top flight during the United States off-season, while David Beckham joined AC Milan on a similar loan deal during his time with LA Galaxy.

This year, both Drogba and former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard have been linked with returns to the Premier League in January, but the Ivorian says his focus has to be on delivering for Montreal.

"I would be honoured, of course, but I think I need to rest, take care of my family and then come back to Montreal and have a good season," he told Sky Sports.

Montreal were beaten 4-3 on aggregate by Colombus Crew in the MLS play-offs earlier this month.
