Leandro Damiao: Internacional striker could make Premier League move in the futu

Damiao admits the prospect of playing in England is a 'great attraction', but insists that he is happy at Inter for the time being.

"I have a contract until 2015 with Internacional and for the moment, despite all the rumours, I am staying where I am and that is in Porte Alegre with Internacional," the Brazilian told the Elastico.

"The Premier League holds great attraction, of course. I was in England for quite some time during the Olympics and it is a great country with good people.

"But for the moment I am staying put."

Damiao also suggested that he could be interested in moving to Chelsea to reunite with his former Inter team-mate Oscar.

"Oscar is a fantastic player," he said.

"I had an excellent relationship with him on the field at Internacional and it is true that I would like to be reunited with Oscar. We still play together when fielded for Brazil.

"But, I have a contract to honour at Internacional. Regardless of the fact that Internacional will not play the Copa Libertadores next year, I maintain my focus here at Internacional.

"It is not an incentive to leave. When a European club will come to the fore, we will see."

recently had to complete a difficult project at work. I had to come in early, stay late. I even had to work some 7 day weeks. Anyway, long story short, I'm now a member of Britain First. Slippery slope.
