Premiership pair impressed by Plestan

Recommended Posts

Nicolas Plestan is unwilling to entertain talk about a potential summer move until the end of the season, with Premiership sides reportedly in the hunt for the Lille defender.


Plestan has been in impressive form for the French side this season and particularly caught the eye during the club's UEFA Champions League campaign.


The 25-year-old has reportedly attracted interest from both Portsmouth and Newcastle United, whilst Fiorentina, Bordeaux and Auxerre have also been mooted as potential destinations.


However, having signed a new deal in September that ties him to the club until 2010, Plestan is not ready to fuel the fire of speculation with Lille still battling for a European finish in Ligue 1.


"French clubs are interested in me, I have been told about Bordeaux and Auxerre's interest, but I am not in contact with them," Plestan told But.


"Anyway, I told my agents not to inform me, just to tell me if there is a concrete approach.


"Certain clubs follow me and are interested in my performances, that means that I am going a good way.


"I want to lead Lille to the Champions league because the club bring so much to me.


"When the season is over, we will talk about my future."

No more French defenders please, at least not from their domestic league, they don't play at the same level game in, game out to warrant a decent bid.

Never seen the lad play although i am not adverse to french defenders - better than spanish - i am not sure if we can attract that much quality without being in europe nxt season even if we are offering a sizeable wage packet
