Zenit ace Shirokov has Premier League dream

Zenit St Petersburg star Roman Shirokov says he still has time to make it to the Premier League.

The 31-year old Russian midfielder has revealed that one day he would like to experience England's top flight with any of the clubs in the top half of the table.

"I think I have a few years left so I would like to try myself in a top league abroad," he told reporters.

"If it was up to me I'd prefer England. I don't think top clubs there would take me but I wouldn't mind joining any team from number five to 10. I think that would suit me perfectly.

"I don't know if I would change clubs over the summer but my agents are working on it and if something suitable would come up, then I'd like to try it."
