According to TopCongo, Kakuta has come out saying he now intends to represent the Leopards at national level.

While on loan at Bolton in 2011, the now 25-year-old famously said: "I want to play for France. Can't change my mind overnight."

Kakuta represented France at youthful, playing for six different age groups between 2006 and 2013.

Much was expected from the winger, but he has failed to live up to the billing and after six stints on-loan. at six different clubs - in five different countries - the Blues sold him to Sevilla.

His stint with the Europa League champions didn't last long and he currently plies his trade in China for Hebei China Fortune.
