Happy"The coach here has trusted me and given me my chance and I want to stay here.

"Do I move? I like Toulouse and they want me here so I think I will stay here. Maybe I will go another day."

Fofana admits he is a fan of English football.

"I like the Premier League," he added.

"It is normal a player will one day want to play in the Premier League."
