Mohammed Salisu holding up for premier league move – Rennes President

Stade Rennes president Nicolas Holveck has said that Ghanaian defender Mohammed Salisu is focused on moving to play in the English premier league.

Despite earlier reports that the highly-rated Real Vallodolid defender has agreed to join the Ligue 1 side, Nicolas Holveck has confirmed that player has turned down the offer.

According to him, Mohammed Salisu prefers a move to an English speaking country; preferably the English premier league.

“We have several targets. We are on three-four players, a level higher than the Europa League. If we succeed, there will be real reinforcements. There will be ambitious recruitment whatever happens,

“Salisu is currently prioritising the Premier League. Forcing a player despite agreements between clubs is something we don’t necessarily want to do.

“We have done everything to convince him, a priority, he would like to go to the Premier League”, Holveck is quoted by Foot Mercato.

“We want players who want to come. This is not a reproach to Salisu, who during our discussions, seemed very sincere. He prefers an English speaking country. We’re not going to force people.” the Rennes president added.

Mohammed Salisu has been a reported target of premier league clubs following an impressive season for the Spanish La Liga side, Real Valladolid.

The 21-year-old centre back has featured in all games for the Real Valladolid this season.
