Newcastle defender Sebastien Bassong wants to leave the club for an immediate return to the Premier League.
The Magpies were relegated from the Premier League on the final day of the campaign and are in danger of a player exodus while owner Mike Ashley finds a buyer for the club.
Bassong, 22, only moved to Newcastle from FC Metz last year and became a regular in the team's leaky defence.
Now the former France Under 21 international fears for his development if he plays at Championship level and is hoping reported interest from Arsenal and Tottenham materialises into a bid.
"I want to leave," Bassong told L'Equipe. "I want to develop in the Premier League."
"I will have to weigh up the pros and cons (of an offer), study the sporting project, the amount of playing time they would want to give me."
