TSG Hoffenheim defender Kasim Nuhu Adams has been talking up his dream of a potential move to the Premier League amid links with Newcastle United, as told to Football Made In Ghana via quotes by Goal.
Adams, currently on loan with Fortuna Dusseldorf, has been touted as a potential target for the Toon and Tottenham Hotspur in recent years, and would love to one day follow his compatriots Christian Atsu, Jeffrey Schlupp, Jordan Ayew and Daniel Amartey in plying his trade in the English top-flight.
“It [the Premier League] is one of the leagues I cherished a lot growing up in Ghana,” Adams said. “That time, we were always watching the Premier League.
“Most Ghanaians watch the Premier League more than any other league. It will be a league that I would like to play in in future.”
It was suggested in 2017 while Adams was playing for BSC Young Boys that Spurs could make an £8million bid for his services, after he hit his stride with the Swiss side to attract adoring glares from North London and St. James’ Park.
But his time at the Rhein-Neckar-Arena only resulted in 16 appearances across all competitions last season as he struggled to stay injury free in Germany, and left in the summer for Dusseldorf on loan.

The 24-year-old is now starting to show the signs of promise that he displayed in Switzerland, with eight Bundesliga outings and one goal to his name, and has started seven of the Flingeraner’s last eight top-flight games.
Adams is also averaging 1.3 successful tackles from 1.8 attempts per 90 minutes in the Bundesliga this season, per WhoScored figures, plus 2.1 interceptions, 4.5 clearances, 2.3 blocks and is winning 1.6 of 3.2 aerial duels.
