Sandefjord's Amankwah eyeing Scotland move

Sandefjord defender Yaw Amankwah is setting his sights on a possible move to Scotland.

The 24-year old Norwegian centre-back was set to trial with Dundee in the winter but that came to no avail and he is determined to win a move to the Scottish Premier League after starring in Norway's First Division.

"There was interest from clubs inside and outside Norway during the window," said the cousin of Arsenal's Emmanuel Frimpong.

"One of those was in Scotland and I was ready to travel across to play a trial.

"There was a request sent to my club and they agreed to it - but I couldn't go because the weather in Scotland at the time was so bad. I was interested in going to Scotland because when I was at Brann Bergen I was friendly with Christian Kalvenes, who played for Dundee United, and former Aberdeen striker Arild Stavrum.

"I also played beside Robbie Winters when he was at Brann and he was a top player.

"I believe my style would suit Scottish football. I am a strong, powerful player and I enjoy defending. You'd call me a no-nonsense sort of player.

"My cousin Emmanuel says I should come to Britain because I would do well there. I don't know if I'm as good a player but I have good genes!"
