St Etienne midfielder Matuidi happy with Newcastle, Liverpool interest

St Etienne midfielder Blaise Matuidi has welcomed Premier League interest.

Arsenal and Liverpool have been linked with the France international in recent months, but Newcastle look set to push ahead with a move for the 24-year-old.

"I am flattered by the interest from clubs abroad, and I have always loved the Premier League," he said.

"It is the best league in the world, so exciting, and I really want to be part of that one day, however St Etienne has its say about that."

On Newcastle specifically he added: "They are one of the big clubs in England but, like I said, it is all rumours at the moment, but you never know."
