Werder Bremen midfielder Ludovic Obraniak has suggested that he could have moved to English Premier League this summer.
Despite enjoying a bright start to his career at Weserstadion, the Polish footballer ultimately fell out of favour at the club and he was desperate to leave in the summer.
Sunderland and West Ham were both keen on his signature, but they ultimately failed to agree a deal with Werder Bremen.
“Sunderland and West Ham United had been in touch, but we could not find an agreement over a transfer,” Obraniak told Bild.
“I don’t think that it is a problem to admit I want to move away (from Werder Bremen). This is not a mistake. It’s just the way I am, it’s my character. I like to point things out.
“My ambition is to play in Euro 2016 for Poland, therefore I need to play regular matches. It’s just reasonable to move clubs because of that.”
Ludovic Obraniak was born in France and began his professional career at Metz, making 99 league appearances for the club before joining Lille in January 2007.
The Poland international spent a total of five years with les Dogues, helping the club win the 2010/2011 Ligue 1 title.
Following two very successful seasons at Bordeaux, Obraniak left France to join Werder Bremen, but that proved to be a poor career move as he could only feature in 10 Bundesliga games.
