Montpellier yesterday announced that they had accepted two offers for Belhanda, and now the player has revealed that he could be Premier League-bound.

“My decision is imminent, I have still got the time to think a bit but I will stand by the decision I will take,” Belhanda is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

“I wanted to play in the Premier League, I have the opportunity so let’s see.”
