Anderlecht striker Dieumerci Mbokani has snubbed a move to Dynamo Kiev as he holds out for a Premier League switch.
The Congolese frontman held discussions with Kiev officials, but has opted against a transfer to the Ukraine.
He is hoping that an English side will come calling once the summer transfer window swings open.
West Bromwich Albion have been linked with the 27-year-old and Mbokani claims interest in his services is mounting.
He said: "I am still an Anderlecht player. I went to Kiev but could not agree anything with the club.
"They were very kind to me but I can say that I will not play for Dynamo next season. I did not undergo a medical in the Ukraine.
"I said I want to play in England and I can confirm that there is some interest at the moment. Let's relax and see what happens by the end of June."
