The Ivory Coast international is the top scorer in Dutch football and has long been linked with a move to England, with the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal, Newcastle and West Ham all said to be keeping a close eye on him.

"For me the Premier League is the top league [in Europe], but the Bundesliga is also good - France, Italy and Spain they're all good too," said Bony.

"England I think would be perfect. I'm very interested in the Premier League and the atmosphere in England, it's a wonderful league and we will see what happens.

"It would be great for me [to move to a club in the Champions League]. It's the only competition I haven't played in yet."

The 24-year-old insists that he will only look at his future when the season has finished.

"The transfer market has not started yet. There's nothing concrete," he told BBC Sport.

"There is a lot of talk about me in the newspapers but I'm still focused on the last two games of the season with Vitesse and at the end of the season we will see.

"I've heard the rumours [about Chelsea being interested], like you've heard about that. There's nothing concrete. We'll see at the end of the season."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
