Tottenham defender Benoit Assou-Ekotto wants to return to France and would preferably join Paris Saint-Germain.

The Ligue 1 side are understood to be looking for reinforcements on their left side and Newcastle's Charles N'Zogbia is rumoured to be a target.

But in the wake of Assou-Ekotto's announcement, PSG could now consider a January bid for the Spurs full-back.

The 24-year-old - who moved to White Hart Lane from Lens in 2006 - featured in Wednesday night's North London derby draw with Arsenal, and also played in new manager Harry Redknapp's first game in charge last weekend.

However, he has confessed that he would welcome the opportunity to return across The Channel, telling RMC: "I have thought a lot and I really want to return to France, and preferably with PSG."
