Mike Tindall has revealed he would like to make a return to Gloucester.
The 33-year-old centre
found himself out of contract at Kingsholm
at the end of the season but has failed to agree a move elsewhere.
And the former England captain admits he would consider re-signing under the club's new coaching set-up, which has yet to be installed.
"I would like to have another chance at Gloucester but that's down to the new coach that comes in," he said.
"I definitely still want to play but it's about making the right decision."
Gloucester have been searching for a new head coach since the departure of
Bryan Redpath last month.

- Signed from Bath in 2005
- Club captain 2010-11 season
- 129 appearances, 15 tries, 88 points in total
Scarlets boss Nigel Davis has been heavily linked with the position but the Premiership outfit have yet to confirm their new backroom staff.
Tindall, who is married to the Queen's grand-daughter Zara Phillips, has been with Gloucester since 2005 but was one of five players deemed surplus to requirements under Redpath, who had already drafted in six new squad members for next season before his resignation.
Tindall has been
out of the England reckoning after last year's World Cup
and he had been linked with a move to France to play at club level.
He says he has considered a move abroad and has also had offers from English clubs, although he hinted they were only short-term contacts.
"I'm still trying to sort it out," he continued. "There's things there but I need to make the right decision.
"Because I've done eight and seven years at Bath and Gloucester respectively it makes it hard to go to one club for one year. That's why I was looking further afield.
"But it's not just about me - it's about the family as well."
