Jonathan Kodjia is open to returning to England to reunite with Slavisa Jokanovic at Sheffield United, according to the Sheffield Star.

Kodjia is no stranger to English football, having previously plied his trade in the Championship with Bristol City and Aston Villa.

The 31-year-old scored 31 goals in 106 games for Villa, and enjoyed a prolific first season at Bristol City in 2015/16, scoring 19 goals in the Championship.
