Willian reveals that he will leave Shakhtar Donetsk one day and wants to move to the Premier League.

Shakhtar Donetsk playmaker Willian has revealed that he "dreams" of playing in the Premier League.

Both Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur have had bids rejected for the 24-year-old Brazil international in the past.

"I was quite upset about what happened at the time because big clubs like Chelsea and Tottenham were interested in securing my services," he told

"Every player dreams of playing in the Premier League. It's in the past now, though. I'm calm and doing my utmost out there on the pitch.

"I don't feel any pressure as I have met with the Shakhtar board and they are aware of my desire to move to a big club in Italy, Spain or England. I have two more years to go on my contract here and will continue to give my best."

Willian joined Shakhtar from Corinthians in 2007.
