Reports in the French media suggest that Lyon’s Ghanaian defender John Mensah is attracting interest from West Ham United and Sunderland. He told that he was flattered, saying that it was ‘great’ to be linked with Premier League sides, admitting that his campaign at Stade Gerland was ‘not good’ due to a struggle with injury although he was now fit and ready to play again- either at Lyon or in England.





The player was keen to stress that no possible deals had been agreed and he was willing to wait to see how things develop- though he admitted an ambition to play in England.

His career began in his homeland with MBC Accra, from where he moved on to Bologna in Italy’s Serie A  before dropping into the lower divisions with the likes of Genoa and Modena prior to seeking a new start in France with Rennes of Ligue Un in 2006 where he made 60 appearances before Lyon signed him in 2008.

This is not the first time Mensah has been linked with English football- Portsmouth and Wigan were linked with bids for him during his time with Rennes. He is also an accomplished international- to date making 58 appearances for Ghana.
