Reported Cardiff City target Max Gradel has poured cold water on reports that he will be returning to English football.
Malkay Mackay was linked with a move for the former Leeds winger whilst Hull boss Steve Bruce is also said to be keen to buy him but the St Etienne star says he is not interested.
Gradel picked up a knee injury back in March and is still suffering with that problem, and he insists he is focused on recovering his fitness rather than thinking about a move anywhere else.
"I am being linked with a return to England but to be honest I am more interested in healing my injury," he told Sky Sports.
"I have been out now for four months - hopefully I will be OK in two months' time.
"It has been difficult for me not to help St Etienne to win the cup. I am part of the team but I was not there to play the final.
"We finished fifth as well so we will play in the Europa League," Gradel added.
"I love England but at the moment I like it here in France. Hull City and Cardiff are good teams but the Premier League will be tough for them, but they can surprise like Swansea."
