Not sure if this is anywhere else

 

Toulouse defender Herita Ilunga could leave the club after being linked with a move to Newcastle United.

 

Ilunga only moved to Toulouse from St Etienne last summer, but is expected to be a back-up player this season.

 

Reports have linked the full-back with a £2million switch to St James' Park, as Newcastle boss Kevin Keegan looks for new signings.

 

The 26-year-old admits that, at this stage of his career, he would not be happy to only be a substitute at Toulouse.

 

Annoying

"I do not exclude leaving," Ilunga told La Depeche du Midi.

 

"If I do not play, at my age, that becomes annoying for the progression of my career."

 

Toulouse coach Alain Casanova was non-committal on whether he would be prepared to allow Ilunga to leave the club.

 

Casanova said: "He has said things, but they are his feelings at the beginning of the season.

 

"It is a long season. Let's see how things move during August."

So he wouldn't be happy to be a substitute at Toulouse but he would here?

 

well we would be paying him more most likely

 

True, but "If I do not play, at my age, that becomes annoying for the progression of my career."
