Stromsgodset hope to keep hold of Manchester City midfielder Abdi Ibrahim.

City boss Manuel Pellegrini has informed Ibrahim he is free to find a new club in January, which has sparked a scramble across Europe for his services.

Ibrahim is currently playing - and starring - on-loan at Stromsgodset this season and the Norwegians are keen to keep hold of him.

Club chief Jostein Flo said: . "We know nothing about the interest of other clubs and will soon talk to City. We want to keep him."
