Nice's Kafoumba Coulibaly said on Tuesday he is looking forward to moving to the Premier League after several English sides such as Fulham, Aston Villa and Norwich expressed interest in signing the Ivorian midfielder.

"I have two years left on my contract. I want to move somewhere else. Hopefully Nice will accept a bid for me and I can take my career to another level," Coulibaly told Sky Sports.

"Playing in England can be exciting for me. I would love that and another league will be welcomed. I want to leave on good terms here."

The 26-year-old, who also played for Belgian side Beveren and Ivorian outfit ASEC Mimosas, has earned ten international caps with Ivory Coast.
