Redknapp confirms interest in Afriyie Acquah

The Blues manager has confirmed his interest to sign the Ghanaian midfielder after missing out on his national teammate

Birmingham City manager Harry Redknapp has confirmed he’s interested in signing Ghana midfielder Afriyie Acquah from Torino in a three-year deal.

The 24-year-old has been a transfer target of the Championship side after they failed to land Emmanuel Agyemang Badu despite a verbal agreement with Redknapp, who watched the player in a pre-season game between Udinese and Huddersfield Town.

“We are trying to get him, he is a good player pp– an outstanding player," Redknapp told his club's website.

“We are hopeful [of signing another player], I don’t know where we are at today, the people who deal with that are off dealing with it. Hopefully it’s getting there.

“Another good player, Ghanaian boy, strong, aggressive, good midfield player. It would probably be one or the other. You have got to see what you can get – and if you can get them both you have got to make a decision.

“If you can only get one, you take him and if you can’t get any – you just pray. We are trying to get one of them in.”

Birmingham have signed David Stockdale, Marc Roberts and Cheikh Ndoye while Acquah could be their latest addition.
