Preston striker Kevin Davies insists he is capable of playing another season even if the newly-promoted Championship side do not offer him a new deal.
The once-capped England forward, 38, whose contract expires in the summer, came off the bench in Sunday's play-off final win over Swindon at Wembley.
"I thought this would be my last season," he told BBC Radio Lancashire.
"I feel I can play for another year but it is dependant on whether or not anybody is interested in me."
Davies played 44 games in the 2014-15 season, starting 15, having started 31 of the 46 matches he featured in a season earlier.

"I didn't start as many matches as I would have liked but that is because of the quality in the squad," Davies said.
"Whether I am here or not next year, I expect Preston to do really well in the Championship."
The former Bolton forward, who won his only England cap in 2010, said he will begin to consider a career in management if a playing offer fails to materialise.
"If no-one comes in for me, I will look to the other side of the game, in terms of coaching and managing one day," he said. "It is something I am really interested in."
