Ilunga open to Magpies move

13 Aug 2008 - 08:43:12

Toulouse left-back Herita Ilunga is excited by the rumoured interest in his services from both Newcastle United and Celtic.

The 26-year-old DR Congo defender has only been with his current club for one season, having previously impressed in Ligue 1 with St Etienne.

Ilunga told Sky Sports: "I am flattered by Celtic's interest, they are one of the biggest teams in the world and their fans are the best in the world.

"But Newcastle have very good fans and I am flattered by their interest also, but we have to wait, it does not depend on me.

"There is so much that needs to be done for a transfer, but a move to the United Kingdom is the one I want to move my career forward.

"The Premier League is appealing, but Celtic are the biggest team in Scotland and are known everywhere, so I don't know, I love the UK and that is all I can say."
