Konan keen on Stoke move

The Ivory Coast international joined the Norwegian side in 2007 from ASEC Abidjan.

“Playing Premier League football is a goal for me, as I watch the English, Spanish and French leagues on television every week, and I believe the English one is the most exciting and attractive,” Konan told setantasports.com.

“My agents are working, and people from England have told me there could be an opportunity to sign there pretty soon.

“I have read stories about Stoke City on your website and to be honest I believe they are a good club. Besides, they have just beaten Arsenal, can you believe it?

“It is a massive win for them, and for sure playing there would be superb.”

Konan has been linked with a january moves to either Stoke or Middlesbrough.
