The Ivory Coast international has long been linked with a move to England, but is yet to complete a switch.

January could see such a move made, with Sunderland, Southampton and Reading believed to be closely monitoring his situation in Germany.

Konan admits that he would welcome the opportunity to take on a new challenge and has refused to rule out the prospect of taking the plunge in 2013.

He is, however, aware that any deal will depend on Hannover and their willingness to discuss a sale.

"I am happy with my form so far," Konan said after netting in a 3-0 victory for Ivory Coast over Austria on Wednesday.

"I have always been linked with the Premier League and hopefully one day a move will happen.

"I am enjoying it at Hannover at the moment, but you never know what will happen in football."

Sturridge: We're moving on

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.
