Auxerre defender Willy Boly claims he will make a decision on his future at the end of the season.
Speculation has suggested that the 22-year-old centre-half is a summer transfer target for Sunderland.
They are by no means the only side reported to be in the running for the highly-rated youngster, but Boly admits to being 'flattered' by Premier League talk.
"I am flattered by all of the talk, but I will wait until the end of the season to see where I will be," he said.
"Sunderland? That would be fantastic. I have dreamt about the English league since the start of my career.
"I have also been linked with clubs in Italy, so maybe that is why I am also linked with (Paolo) Di Canio."
