Djaffo Ayr to please.

Laurent Djaffo would love to play at the top with Ayr United but fears he might not be around to do it.

The 27-year-old Frenchman has been scoring for fun at Somerset Park since arriving three months ago on a free from Mulhouse.

And he's attracting interest from clubs on both sides of the border, including Huddersfield and Charlton.

The pounds 250,000-rated striker said: "I'm enjoying life at Ayr and I want to keep scoring goals that will help us get closer to a promotion place.

"We'd all love to play in the top league here.

"But it is also an ambition of mine to play in the Premiership and I hope it happens for me one day."

For now Djaffo is happy with his lot and part of that is down to gaffer Gordon Dalziel's wind-ups.

Laurent smiled: "The boss never lets you get carried away - especially if you're a forward.

"He always talks about how good a striker he was but sometimes I can't understand what he's saying - at least that's what I let him think!"

Fellow Frenchmen Luc Sonor and keeper David Castilla have helped Laurent settle but they too may be on borrowed time at Ayr.

Like Djaffo, Castilla is being watched by English outfits and 35-year- old Sonor makes no bones about his ambitions.

Luc - French Defender of the Year in 1987, 88 and 89 - said: "If we go up I will be very keen to stay but if we don't then I will have to think carefully about my future."
