Transfer news: Paris Saint-Germain defender Tiene Siaka has been left disappointed by Fulham’s failure to act on their reported interest in him.

The Ivory Coast left-back had been strongly linked with the Cottagers after falling out of favour at PSG, but has now agreed to join Ligue 1 rivals Montpellier.

Siaka is pleased to be leaving PSG but admits he would have loved to move to the Premier League.

“I am leaving PSG because they do not want me,” he is quoted as saying by Sky Sports. “It was a good experience to leave a team who won the league.

“Fulham has been linked with me, but never went in for me which they should have done. I have always wanted to play in the Premier League.”

He insists, however, that he is looking forward to joining Montpellier.

“Montpellier will be fantastic for me,” he added. “I will have more opportunities there.”
