Onyekachi Apam: Is dreaming of a move to the Premier League

Premier League trio Everton, West Bromwich Albion and Sunderland have all been linked with the Nigeria international in the past.

The 26-year-old has played all of his club football in France, first with Nice before moving to Rennes in the summer of 2010.

A serious knee injury meant he made just one appearance in his first 18 months at the Route de Lorient and made just 13 outings in total last season.

Injuries have again restricted him to just nine appearances so far this campaign, with his latest setback a niggling ankle injury.

Despite his fitness worries Apam, who has seven international caps, is hopeful of returning to action before the end of the season and has already set his sights on securing a move to England.

"I am injured at the moment but hopefully I can play the next three games," he said. "I have always dreamt of playing in England and testing myself against the best strikers in the world.

"Hopefully I will get that chance in the summer.

"Rennes is a great club, they had so many injuries this year but they will be fine next season with or without me."

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
