Marseille recruit Stephane Mbia says he would still love to play in the English Premier League.
The 23-year old recently made the switch from French Ligue 1 club Rennes to rival Marseille but hopes to one day fulfil his dream of playing in England.
"My dream has always been to play in the Premier League one day," Mbia told skysports.com.
"I told the clubs that were interested in me that moving to Marseille was a step on my progression towards a top league and into a top tournament like the UEFA Champions League.
"I don't want to go and be a flop in any team, so one or two years at Marseille will help to improve me before I join an English team.
"I told those that were keen to give me a year before I will eventually join them in the future.”
