Ivorian forward Gervinho has announced he wants to stay with Lille rather than move to the Premier League.

The 23-year-old attacker has been linked with Liverpool and Newcastle but wishes to remain with the current Ligue 1 leaders.

Gervinho, who was in Ivory Coast’s World Cup squad, said: “There is no way I’m leaving Lille now. I am enjoying my football now more than ever before. We are playing well, scoring goals and our team spirit is fantastic.

“I want to win the league here, that is very important and would give any player a lot of confidence. My ambition is to play for a big club one day, in a big league, but at the moment Lille is the place to be and I am enjoying being part of their success.”
