Premiership clubs are ready to pounce for Valencia striker Nikola Zigic.

The big Serb has rejected a move to Galatasaray after admitting he wants a move to England.

The Daily Mail says the tricky 6ft 8in Serbia international has previously been close to sealing transfers to Blackburn Rovers, Stoke City and Sunderland and now seems certain to leave La Liga this summer.

Fulham and Everton have also tracked the out-of-favour former Racing Santander player, but Galatasaray are believed to be the first club to make a strong move ahead of the transfer window opening.

However, Zigic said: "I don't know the plans of my club, but my desire is to go to England. I'm still a Valencia player, but I have to think about my future."
