Everton and West Ham United target Dieumerci Mbokani insists he will definitely leave Monaco in January despite the French club having sacking their manager Guy Lacombe earlier in the month.

Laurent Banide has been appointed as replacement, but even a change in coaches has failed to change the mind of the Congolese striker.

"I stand by my decision," said the 25-year-old.

"I still want to leave. I haven't changed my opinion. It has come too late. I have told the vice-president, Michel Aubery, that if he had an offer for me, he must accept it."
