Annan hoping to win contract with Rovers

August 12, 2008

Ghana midfielder Anthony Annan is hoping his future will be resolved in the near future after completing his trial with Blackburn.

The 22-year-old, who currently plays for Norwegian club IK Start, impressed several European clubs during the 2008 African Nations Cup when he helped the Black Stars finish third in the competition.

He has also reportedly been offered a trial with Arsenal in recent days, and is hoping a move to England materialises one way or the other.

'I hope for a response as soon as possible,' he told Norway's Nettavisen newspaper. 'They (Blackburn) seem interested as they came all the way here to see me.

'I have always dreamed of playing in England, France or Italy. I am ready for new challenges and would like to play for Blackburn if they want me.'
