Bernard Mendy has admitted he would be happy to return to the Premier League.Former Bolton star Bernard Mendy has admitted he would be happy to return to the Premier League.
However, the Paris Saint Germain full-back is happy with life in the French capital and would also be pleased to extend his stay at the Parc des Princes.
"It is an honour to be part of the club's emblematic players, the senior players," Bernard Mendy told Football365.
"There are a lot of rumours about me. The media said I was on my way out. I don't know if it is the president or the directors that told them. I don't know but I am still here.
"The club is looking for a right-back but I don't think that it is to push me out. I love competition. That is football and I am open to all offers.
"I love England. I played for Bolton during one season where I had a lot of fun. Be careful, I am not gone for the moment. My contract finishes in June 2008.
"I am still with Paris, the club of my heart. I will do everything for PSG until the end of my contract in June, or later if I sign on."
Meanwhile, PSG are locked in talks with Rennes over the transfer of Gregory Bourillon.
Rennes supremo Frederic de Saint-Sernin admits Bourillon wants to leave the Brittany club.
"I like Gregory very much, even if he is the only player who refused the contract prolongation we offered," he said.
"He wants to join PSG, and has maybe found an agreement with them. But Bourillon is still under contract with us for one more season, I called the Parisian officials to tell them. I don't want to break Bourillon's dream to join PSG, but his ambition has to match the fact we won't be losers."
One player looking like heading towards the exit is midfielder Rudy Haddad - who is not confident that coach Paul Le Guen will give him the chance to prove himself, after spending last season on loan at Valenciennes.
"For the moment, I try to train well, to work physically. Then, maybe I will have to leave. They told me they had a lot of offensive players and that it wasn't guaranteed I would play," Haddad said.
"If they tell me it is blocked and that they don't count on me, then it is me who wishes to move.
"At Valenciennes, I have seen that I was ready to leave Paris. Football isn't only PSG - there are other clubs in France and abroad. I don't want to have experienced that loan at VA, with 33 matches played, to stagnate.
"If we start to discuss with another club, I don't think that Paris will block it. They will find the right price and everybody will be happy."
