The Great Britain star Luol Deng can expect his services to be in demand by Europe's biggest clubs after he admitted he is ready to leave America.

With the NBA embroiled in a labour dispute, the Chicago Bulls forward has been sidelined since mid-September. However, with no sign of the lockout ending, the Londoner has signalled he will consider offers on this side of the Atlantic, with the European champions Panathinaikos and Spanish giants Bilbao among likely suitors. "I've always wanted to play in Europe," he said.
