The Australian international currently plies his trade for the New York Red Bulls after leaving Goodison Park, and has been a hit since his arrival in America.
The 33-year-old helped his side to win the Eastern Conference this year, but they were eventually knocked out of the play-offs at the first time of asking by the Houston Dynamo.
With the Socceroos already guaranteed a spot at next summer’s World Cup in Brazil, Cahill is desperate to maintain his fitness throughout the festive down period in the MLS.
As a result, he is ready to move back to England on a short-term loan.
“The move depends on getting my body right. But the plan is for the World Cup,” he told the Daily Star.
Cahill is not short of admirers, with former club Everton, as well as the likes of Sunderland, Fulham and QPR all keen to offer him a route back to England.
The Australian would not be the first player to secure a temporary move to Europe during the American pre-season, with David Beckham, Landon Donovan and Robbie Keane just three names to have taken the opportunity in recent years.
Could Tim Cahill be a wise signing for a Premier League side?
