Highly-rated PSG midfielder Stephane Sessegnon has revealed he has had offers to play in the Premier League. The Benin international has been linked with a string of top English clubs in the past, with Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool among those rumoured to be interested. The playmaker made his name in the 2008 African Cup of Nations and has been monitored by several clubs since, but for the first time the 25-year-old has revealed he turned down the chance to move to England. "I had various contacts with English clubs," Sessegnon told "However, I decided to stay in PSG because I have a lot to learn before coming to a very big league and another big club in a country I can't speak the language of." Sessegnon admits he is in no rush to decide on his future and will only do so when he feels he is ready for the challenge. "I have a long future, I am still young. I need to work hard and go at the right time." Despite being born and brought up in the Ivory Coast, Sessegnon opted to represent Benin for personal reasons which brought criticism from Ivorian fans, but he insists he made the right decision. He added: "I am happy to play for Benin. Ivory Coast have a good team but I can't regret my decision. "I chose the right one and I am happy with that, and I really don't want to talk about it."
