Annan played for Ghana at the 2010 World Cup and attracted praise for his performances in central midfield, but was unable to seal a move away from Norway and will now have to wait until the next window.

"There have been a number of enquiries from Premier League clubs, but at the moment it looks as though he will stay at Rosenborg. We will now wait until January," Agent Lars Petter-Foddahl told

Rosenborg paid £1.25 million to sign the Ghanaian from IK Start in 2008, but after failing to secure a move to Blackburn following a trial, he has not managed to engineer a move to the Premier League.
