Bolton, Newcastle target Cisse confirms England return hopes

Olympique Marseille striker Djibril Cisse admits he fancies a return to England.

The former Liverpool man is interesting Bolton Wanderers and Newcastle United and told L'Equipe: "I would like my future to be settled before the start of the Euros if I am lucky enough to play in it.

"I will make a decision soon and I don't want to hear anything about money or transfers during the competition.

"I have missed so many opportunities to play in a big international competition that I don't want to be disturbed if I am selected to be in Switzerland.

"My decision regarding my future will have no link with Marseille gaining Champions League qualification.

"Anyway, we have one game renaming and we have to do out best to get the Champions League spot.

"I will repeat it once again, that people here have really hurt me. Will I be able to forget it all? I don't know.

"England is a country which attracts me. It is true that the fans are very different. When I go back to Liverpool it is like I am still playing there.

"Of course I would love the chance to play in the Premier League again. But I still have three years remaining on my contract in France."
