Dinamo Kiev playmaker Younes Belhanda remains optimistic that one day he will make the move to the Premier League. 

The former Montpellier star made the move to Ukrainian giants Dinamo Kiev last summer after the French side cashed-in on what was their most valuable asset. 

It had originally been understood that Belhanda would transfer to the the Premier League, with Aston Villa, Manchester United and Arsenal all rumoured to be interested in a move. 

But the level of transfer activity surrounding Belhanda was less than originally thought, and Belhanda move to Ukraine. 

But the star has struggled to adapt to life in Ukraine, and has been accused of only making the move purely for the money. 

He said: "My transfer to Kiev? I didn't have any other offers, apart from Al-Jazira. People talked about Aston Villa and stated that I joined Kiev for money. If it was was only for money I would have joined Al-Jazira," Belhanda told France Football. 

"How long will I stay at Dynamo? I don't know. If I have opportunities to go higher I will seize them."

But it is a move to England and the Premier League that Belhanda really wants, stating that Arsenal is his dream club.

"I am dreaming about England. Every player wants to play in England one day- I have to experience that. My favourite club- Arsenal, of course. It is the club of Frenchmen. Newcastle as well, but they are a step below. Manchester City and Liverpool are exciting too."

There are so many clubs with big histories- that is England," he added.
