N'Zonzi keen to leave Sevilla

Former Blackburn Rovers and Stoke City midfielder Steven N'Zonzi has indicated that he is desperate to leave Sevilla.

The 28-year-old is frustrated with his lack of recent first-team opportunities and has hinted that he could return to the Premier League in January.

N'Zonzi has not featured since being substituted at half-time as Sevilla hit back to draw 3-3 with Liverpool in the Champions League last month.

The France international, who has been linked with Arsenal and Everton in the past, has confirmed that he has fallen out with coach Eduardo Berizzo.

"The coach pointed the finger at me [at half-time of the Liverpool game]. I will not repeat it ... but his words affected me," N'Zonzi said.

"Publicly he said in the future he would only select players who fit his vision for football. What does that mean?

"Whether in a 4-3-3, 3-5-2 or any other formation, a player must adapt to what his coach demands and I have always done it.

"The fact I was always professional despite the circumstances, that I always did my job, I found it unfair. My future is clearly away from Seville. The only thing that disappoints me is the way it has ended."

Sevilla are 7/1 to beat Real Madrid on Saturday and 33/1 to beat Zinedine Zidane's side 1-0.
