Boulogne-sur-Mer defender Steven Mouyokolo has welcomed Premiership interest.

Wigan, Middlesbrough, Newcastle and Bolton are all watching the Ligue 2 star and he told skysports.com: "I am flattered by the speculation, it means I am doing my job properly, but I am just focused on doing the best I can.

"The Premier League is a dream for me, but I think I may need more time to get myself ready. My ambition is to compete in Ligue 1 before moving on to a bigger division.

"For now all this is just speculation anyway, my club look after me and if they are happy to let me go then fine, I am ambitious.

"I will move one day but I don't want to leave with enemies at the club because without them I would not have been given the opportunity to generate rumours.

"But, as the English say, let's wait and see what happens."
