Mensah seeks England return

07 July 2010 04:06
Former Sunderland loanee John Mensah has said he would love a dream move back to the Premier League. The defender enjoyed a successful World Cup with Ghana this summer, despite missing a penalty in their heartbreaking shoot-out defeat to Uruguay in the quarter-finals. Mensah made just 16 appearances for the Black Cats last term as he struggled with injury, but he certainly demonstrated his capabilities at the heart of the Black Stars' defence in South Africa and, although he will return to parent club Lyon, he would welcome a permanent switch to England. He said: "If it depends on me I would prefer to stay in the Premier League but in football today there are many things involved. "Lyon is my club so they have their say as well. The sad thing is I never gave my best to Lyon. "I am resting now and want to get my batteries recharged for next season. I want to have an injury free season at the top level."
