Ivory Coast international Serge Aurier has revealed his desire to return to Paris Saint-Germain in the future.

The Tottenham Hotspur defender told Canal+ Afrique as reported by, that PSG remains a club close to his heart and that he hopes for a return to the Parc des Princes at some point in his career.

Aurier, who enjoyed spells with Lens and Toulouse before signing for PSG, joined Spurs from the French champions for a reported £23 million in August 2017 after just two seasons in Paris.

“Can I see myself finishing my career at PSG? That is my plan,” Aurier told Canal+ Afrique

“I would like to finish at PSG. It is before everything else the club of my heart. I have a feeling of unfinished business.

“It has been my club since I was a kid, I would go watch matches at the Parc des Princes. It was a dream for me to come to PSG and for me that dream is not finished.

He continued: “If I was to finish my career at PSG, I would love that. I could have spent my entire career at PSG, that certainly wouldn’t have upset me. When you play for the club of your heart, you don’t want to go anywhere else nor do you have regrets.

“There are players who have spent nearly their entire careers at one club because it is love. It is not a question of money or anything else. All my family is in Paris, I am Parisian, I cannot dream of better.

“Today I am having my little career elsewhere, I hope to be the best a bit everywhere. I am following PSG from afar, but it remains my club and that will not change,” he concluded.

The 27-year-old has scored six goals in 74 appearances across all competitions for Spurs with 33 of those matches coming in the current campaign.

Aurier was part of the Ivory Coast team that won the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.
