Tottenham fullback Chimbonda keen on France return

Tottenham fullback Pascal Chimbonda wants a move to France.

The 30-year-old has been linked with a £2.5million move to Portsmouth as a replacement for Liverpool new boy Glen Johnson, while Blackburn Rovers, Marseille and Panathinaikos have also shown interest.

"I've heard nothing," he told France Football. "I had a mixed season, with some very low points and some highlights. Now everyone is at square one, so I'll play the best I can to do very well with Tottenham."

Chimbonda admitted he had not yet spoken to boss Redknapp about his future.

"It is the coach who makes decisions," he said. "I like to play in England; I feel respected here."

Asked if he could soon play in Ligue 1, he said: "Yes, this is something that could motivate me, but not for just any club.

"If a club such as Bordeaux, Marseille, Lyon or Paris Saint-Germain appealed to me, why not?"
