Belgian striker Marvin Ogunjimi has left the door open for a move to the Barclays Premier League, after a move to Real Mallorca fell through on deadline day.

The Genk forward was ready to make his move to La Liga on the final day of the transfer window, but the transfer failed to earn approval from FIFA.

Ogunjimi's move is still expected to go through, however, he will be forced in wait until the January transfer window.

"I have always loved the Spanish league, so it a great feeling for me to be going to play there," he said.


"I am looking forward to going there in the New Year."

The 23-year-old was reportedly linked with moves to Newcastle United, who ended up empty handed on deadline day as their move to Bryan Ruiz fell through.

According to Ogunjimi, he has no knowledge of a move to Newcastle, but wouldn't rule out a move to England at some point in his career.

"I was not aware directly of their interest, it was through the newspapers," he said. "However, I had already made my mind up about Spain, maybe one day I will play in the Premier League because it is also a top league."

With moves to Mevlut Erdinc and Papiss Demba Cisse also falling through, Newcastle eventually had to settle on the single striker signing of Demba Ba from West Ham United.
