The Ghanaian striker is pushing to complete a deal before the January transfer window closes

Ghana striker Edwin Gyasi has revealed his desire to leave Norwegian second-tier side Aalesunds FK before the January transfer window closes on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old, who has 10 months left on his contract, has been on the radar of Premier League sides West Bromwich Albion and Swansea City but Sunderland and Middlesbrough were the teams that tabled official bids a fortnight ago.

However, his club is unwilling to sell the striker, who happens to be one of the key players the Tangoshirts are counting on to return to the top-flight next season.

"I do not want to play in the first division in Norway, I think everyone understands this," Gyasi told Sunnmorsposten.

"I have ambitions to play at a much higher level [like England] and I'm afraid that there will be a landslide fights if I do not get on. I want to leave and they should let me go," he added.

Gyasi, who was born in Amsterdam to Ghanaian parents, opted to represent the Black Stars and has made two appearances, scoring one goal for the national team.
