It seems to me that I've had a rather good season. There are people who have been scouting me - my agents have told me about it.
And most importantly, after six years here, a cycle is coming to an end. I am one of the pieces of furniture in the dressing-room here. I feel ready to join one of the top European clubs.
It is certain to be a busy summer as always for the English Premier League and Chedjou is just one of many that could head across the channel in the summer.
