Lyon midfield ace Mickael Essien admits he welcomes interest from the Premiership.

The Ghana international has been watched by Manchester United chief scout Martin Ferguson in recent weeks and is said to be a £10 million target for the Premiership giants.

The combative 22-year-old said: "I'll be happy in England.

"Everything in England attracts me - the fans, the clubs, the history."
