Dieumerci Mbokani: Was keen on a move to England, but is off to Ukraine

Premier League sides are known to have expressed an interest in the Congolese striker as he sought a summer switch away from Anderlecht.

West Bromwich Albion were believed to be in the hunt, while Liverpool also made a tentative approach.

Mbokani was prepared to admit that a move to England held the greater appeal to him, but he claims to have no regrets at having decided to head for Ukraine instead.

He said: "I am not sad not to be going to England. I am joining a big club in Dynamo and I am looking forward to that.

"Liverpool did not show enough for me and nor did the other English clubs.

"I now want to score many goals with Dynamo. I want to be remembered like (Andriy) Shevchenko.

"Dynamo has to win the league back. Next season we have to be in the Champions League and be a force to be reckoned with."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
