Sevilla's French defensive midfielder Steven N'Zonzi spoke to France Football about rumours of a recent visit to London being related to a possible transfer move to the Premier League.

Juventus are said to be tracking N'Zonzi as well, and the 28-year-old is keeping his options open regarding a new destination.

Matters have rather come to a head of late, with N'Zonzi made to train alone after reportedly leaving the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium early following his half-time substitution during the 3-3 Champions League draw with Liverpool on 21 November.

Sevilla President Jose Castro accepts Steven N'Zonzi could leave in January but 'if not, he has two-and-a-half years left...'

"The reality is that he isn't in the plans of the Coach, from what I can tell, but that doesn't mean it can't change at any time".

"Today N'Zonzi is part of the team, but within a month I don't even know if I am going to be [part of it]".

N'Zonzi's career so far.


'Publicly, he said in future he would only select players who fit his vision for football.

"Whether in a 4-3-3, 3-5-2 or any other formation, a player must adapt to what his coach demands and I have always done it". "The only thing that disappoints me is the manner in which this is ending".

N'Zonzi has £35.2million release clause and could be available in January.
