Reported Newcastle target, Nancy defender Massadio Haidara, admits a move to England would be his preferred choice. The 20 year old told RMC: "Newcastle do appeal to me, but everyone has to agree.

"I would be very happy to play there. My preference is England. It is the league which attracts me the most and would suit my game the best.

"A move to Roma? They are a good team, so I would be happy to play there.

"I do not plan on leaving for the sake of it, though. I will leave if there is a good proposition for me and the club."
