Derek Boateng welcomes English interest


Getafe's Ghana international midfielder Derek Boateng has admitted that he would love the chance to play in England, having recently been linked with interest from Tottenham Hotspur.

The 27-year-old only moved to Spain in the summer of 2009, but would relish the opportunity to try his luck in England, having previously played in Greece, Sweden, Israel and Germany.

He told Tribalfootball:"All good players would love to play in England and players in my position on the field are stars there.

"I like the physical part of football, so I would love to play there one day.

"Tottenham? They are a fantastic team, White Hart Lane is a great stadium, so you never know, it would be fantastic. However, I am happy here in Getafe.

"I am playing at a good level at the moment, I am happy with my form and hopefully it will continue."
