Hamburg defender David Bates has welcomed interest from the Premier League, as Arsenal, Everton, Leicester City and Watford have all been linked with the centre-half this season.
The 22-year-old insists he’s in no rush to leave Germany.
Bates told the Hamburger Morgenpost: "Everyone in the world is watching the Premier League.
"It's one of the best leagues in the world, probably the best. But why should I think about it now? I'm happy here."
