In an interview with La Voix du Nord, Lille defensive midfielder Idrissa Gueye admitted that he did not know what the future held for him this summer, amid speculation that he is nearing a move to Southampton.
He had the following to say:
“As I have always said, I have a contract with Lille until 2018. Admittedly, there are contacts and there will be offers. I will have to look at it all and decide what suits me best. Find the offer that will allow me to grow, to allow me to take new steps to be in line with my ambitions. But I feel good at Lille and if I was to stay here, it would not be the end of the world. But everyone knows that England has a league that attracts me, even if I am not closing the door on going to other leagues.”
