Rosenborg sporting director, Erik Hoftun has confirmed that his side was never interested in signing Ghanaian midfielder, Anthony Annan.

“We have a very good central midfielder in Ole Selnæs. We are very pleased so we don’t need him (Anthony Annan).””We never contacted Anthony Annan in the Summer,” he noted. Annan scored one goal in 57 matches for Rosenborg between 2008 and 2011.
