Agent: Brighton teammate Ostigard key to Gyokeres choosing St Pauli

The agent of Brighton striker Viktor Gyokeres says he hasn't been short of offers.

The Swede is currently on-loan with St Pauli in Germany, though agent Per Jonsson says there was also interest from Malmo and Brondby.

He told Fotbolltransfers: "There were seven or eight clubs that were interested before choosing St. Pauli. I can confirm that both Malmö FF and Brøndby have shown serious interest.

"Obviously, Malmö FF was of course a super interesting and serious alternative before choosing St. Pauli.

"But there were also clubs like Dynamo Dresden, a top Czech club and one in the Netherlands, who were really involved. St. Pauli got him because his teammate from Brighton Leo Skiri Ostigard decided to go there."
