Hibernian defender Souleymane Bamba claims Premier League title hopefuls Liverpool are following his progress.

The Reds have signed full-back Glen Johnson this summer and Greece international Sotiris Kyrgiakos is set for a medical on Merseyside before a deal is completed.

But according to Bamba, Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is also keeping tabs on his career in Scotland.

The Ivory Coast international has also announced that French clubs Lorient and Grenoble are admirers.

Bamba said in the Daily Record: "I've been told by my agent there has been a lot of interest in me in the summer.

"Liverpool, Lorient and Grenoble are all following me and obviously it's flattering.

"Any player would be attracted to a club of Liverpool's size but I can't think too much about that until there is a concrete offer from them."
