Forssell set for City exit

03 May 2007 02:29
Birmingham City striker Mikael Forssell is set to join German Bundesliga side Hannover in the summer. The injury-plagued former Chelsea marksman has failed to establish himself in the Blues' first team in recent seasons and is expected to complete a cut-price £1million switch when the transfer window opens in June. "I think that going to Hannover is definitely a possibility. Anything is. I am sure these things will be sorted," said the Finland international. "I want to be playing first-team football. That's what every player wants. "I have been feeling sharp for a long time. I have been fit and ready to go." Forssell has made only 21 starts for Birmingham since arriving at St Andrew's in a £3million transfer in 2005. The 26-year-old has been troubled by persistent knee trouble during the last two campaigns.
