The Jackal defeated Mexican Hugo Cazáres with ease in a title eliminator in the Odyssey on Friday night.
The win means the Tiger's Bay fighter is next in line for a shot at the title against the current belt holder Santa Cruz.
That fight is likely, with television demands, to be held in America - however, speaking to UTV, Frampton said a Belfast bout was not out of the question.
He said: "People have ruled it out, but what's important is that Golden Boy [the promoters] haven't.
"American television has seen the atmosphere here and they are interested, so I wouldn't rule it out. But if I have to travel to the states, then so be it."
The 27-year-old said he expected negotiations to begin this week and continue for a couple of weeks.
Frampton - who sensationally felled his 36-year-old opponent in the second round of Friday's fight with a massive left hook - also praised the 9,000 strong crowd in the Odyssey for their support.
He added: "It felt like 30,000, it really is a carnival atmosphere beforehand and it will just get bigger and better and I can't wait to see it for a world title fight."
