Nice striker Mamadou Bagayoko has revealed that there is interest in his services from clubs in the English Championship.

The 31-year old Mali international has been handed just two substitute appearances in France’s Ligue 1 this season and is frustrated with the situation at the Stade Municipal du Ray.

The former Strasbourg and Nantes man admits he doesn’t want to leave Nice but insist he has options to ponder regarding his playing future.

“Cleary I am annoyed," Bagayoko told L'Equipe.

"I am not in a group of 19 or 20 players. Even if there is an injury I am not certain to be involved.

"I don't feel part of the side at all. I am the seventh or eighth forward at the moment.

"I have propositions to consider, though, from the Persian Gulf, Greece, Turkey and the Championship.

"But I am in no rush to leave and putting me to one side won't push me out of the door."
