Faouzi Ghoulam: St Etienne defender linked with Premier League clubs

Ghoulam was linked with Fulham, Stoke City and Udinese during the January transfer window and has continued to impress at St Etienne.

The 22-year-old won his first cap for Algeria on Tuesday in a World Cup qualifier against Benin and he was delighted to receive international recognition.

The left-back also believes that, if he can keep his place in the Algeria squad, he will attract further interest from clubs.

"I am very happy with my first cap for the national team," Ghoulam told Sky Sports.

"I would like to congratulate the team. I am happy with my performance, my first cap, my first assist.

"There is interest from the Premier League and I welcome that. It means I am doing well with my club.

"If I can add the level of playing well with a national team, more clubs will be interested."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
