Fulham goalkeeper Sergio Rico has admitted he would love to play in the Premier League on a permanent basis even if it is not with the Cottagers.

The Spain international is currently on loan at Craven Cottage after agreeing to leave Sevilla last summer. Rico has been at the Spanish giants since his youth career started and he helped them win the Europa League on two occasions.

However, after getting a taste of Premier League football he is now determined to secure a permanent move to England.

Rico has made 17 appearances so far, but he has only kept three clean sheets in what has been a tough season so far.

When asked about his future, he told Sky Sports News: “I have to come back to Seville but I would like to come here [England] next season because I am very happy here.

“I like the Premier League and I enjoy it a lot here in London, I am so happy. I don’t know the future now but I would like to come here again.”

Fulham are next in action on Friday night when they travel across London to take on West Ham United at the London Stadium. Claudio Ranieri’s men remain in the bottom three ahead of kick-off but a win would close the gap on Southampton on 18th for the time being.

The Cottagers have won just one of their last five top-flight games and they are 4.20 outsiders to win this weekend. West Ham remain 1.83 favourites, while the draw is priced at 3.80.
