Anderlecht defender Kouyate welcomes Premier League interest

Cheikhou Kouyate admits he loves hearing his name linked with Premier League clubs.

The 23-year old Anderlecht defender has previously attracted interest from Arsenal but more recently, Newcastle United have been curious.

The Senegal international says he would jump at the chance to take next step in his career but is prepared to be patient.

"We are all ambitious," he said. "I want to move in my career. If I improve big clubs from abroad will come for me.

"The story of Arsenal was true but nothing materialised. Arsene Wenger is a great coach and to show an interest in me was fantastic.

"Newcastle could be great as well, but let's wait and see."
