Wigan Athletic striker Arouna Kone admits that he wants to leave the club as he has no desire to play in the Championship next season.

Wigan Athletic striker Arouna Kone has stated that he has no desire to play in the Championship with the Latics and has admitted that he will seek a move away from the club.

The 29-year-old impressed in his first season in the Premier League and has been linked with Liverpool and Everton this summer.

Kone told reporters: "You always have ambitions as a footballer, and I don't intend to play in the English second division.

"Wigan have gone down, which is a real shame. It's up to them to set out their stance about my situation. I aim to play for one of the best clubs in England, and I hope I will get the chance.

"I've had plenty of approaches. I can't reveal the names of the clubs. I'm under contract with Wigan for two more years. But if there is an offer that is good for both me and Wigan I will seek to leave."

Kone scored 13 goals in 38 appearances in all competitions for Wigan last season.
