Sky Sports revealed on Tuesday that Alan Pardew had turned his attention to the France U21 international.

It is not the first time Haidara has drawn admiring glances from England, with Aston Villa understood to have made a move last summer.

They were unsuccessful in their efforts to land the 20-year-old, but Newcastle hold plenty of appeal to the youngster and he would welcome the opportunity to test himself in the Premier League.

Haidara told RMC: "Newcastle do appeal to me, but everyone has to agree.

"I would be very happy to play there. My preference is England. It is the league which attracts me the most and would suit my game the best.

"A move to Roma? They are a good team, so I would be happy to play there.

"I do not plan on leaving for the sake of it, though. I will leave if there is a good proposition for me and the club."
