The 26-year-old left-back claims Gordon Strachan and Kevin Keegan are battling it out to land the Congo DR international, and Ilunga says he would be happy to move to either Parkhead or St James' Park.

Herita Ilunga: "I am flattered by Celtic's interest, they are one of the biggest teams in the world and their fans are the best in the world.

"But Newcastle have very good fans and I am flattered by their interest also, but we have to wait, it does not depend on me.

"There is so much that needs to be done for a transfer, but a move to the United Kingdom is the one I want to move my career forward.

"The Premier League is appealing, but Celtic are the biggest team in Scotland and are known everywhere - so I don't know, I love the United Kingdom and that is all I can say."
