Belhadj flattered by reported Barcelona interest

Nadir Belhadj has admitted any player would be interested in joining Barcelona after being praised by Xavi. Belhadj's future has been the subject of speculation for some time following a series of strong performances for Portsmouth over the past couple of years.

The Algerian full-back would be expected to attract interest and Barcelona midfielder Xavi has claimed that he would be a good signing for the European champions.

"Who would not want to play for them?" he said in the Daily Express.

"It is a real honour for a world-class player such as Xavi to say good things about me."
