AS Monaco defender Benoit Badiashile admits he's had contact with English clubs.

The French defender, 21, has been in red-hot form for Champions League-chasing Monaco this season.

He is being tipped with a move to either Manchester United or Newcastle in the transfer window and has just over two years remaining on his contract.

Badiashile said: “We all know the competitiveness of the Premier League, it is a fantastic league that of course, is very interesting and we all love the games.

“I had the chance to play in the Champions League with Monaco and I think this club deserves this competition, it's a club that's used to playing in this competition and we want to get back on track.

“Right now, I'm really happy with Monaco. I had some contact in the past with some [English] clubs but I'm fully focused on the end of the season and Monaco and I feel good."
