Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang: Would like a move to England

According to reports earlier in the week, Saint Etienne rejected an €18million offer from Newcastle for the player but accepted a €20million bid from Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala.

But speaking to Sky Sports, Aubameyang says he has his heart set a move to the English Premier League.

Aubameyang said: "I will choose England before any other destination.

"My dream has always been to play in one of the top two leagues in the world.

"Newcastle is a good club and St James's Park is a monumental stadium where there is passionate fans."

The 24-year-old Gabon international striker's future is expected to become clearer when he returns from holiday in the next couple of weeks.
