The sooner the better," the 24-year-old said. "I want to test myself against all the biggest and best defenders in the English league.[LNB]"Sunderland? Mensah said they are a good team.[LNB]"West Ham is attractive because they are in London and that is a great city that I love.[LNB]"But Rennes will have their say, I still have a contract with them and they are great people there. So let's wait and see."[LNB]Gyan's World Cup ended in heartbreak as Ghana bowed out to Uruguay on penalties at the quarter-final stage.[LNB]Gyan scored in the shoot-out but missed a spot-kick in the closing seconds of extra-time that would have sent Ghana through to the last four.[LNB]He has now come to terms with the disappointment, saying: "I am very well.
