The defender says he would like to have a feel of the Premier League before bowing out of the game

Ghana defender Daniel Opare has reiterated his desire to ply his trade in the Premier League before hanging up his boots.

The 28-year-old recently joined Belgian side Royal Antwerp from German outfit Augsburg and has already made two appearances with the club.

"The Premier League still remains a dream [before ending my career]," Opare said as quoted by Ghanasoccernet.

"Together with my new club, I want to develop myself further. I want to get along, prove myself and then probably leave since that's how it goes in today's football. 

"When Luciano D'Onofrio phoned and told me about the Antwerp project, I was immediately enthusiastic. Look at the stadium, the training infrastructure. Okay, it's a different level than in Germany, for example, but it's great," he added.

Opare was previously linked with a move to former Premier League champions Leicester City but an official bid was rejected by Augsburg leading to the player’s going AWOL before his contract was mutually terminated.
