Demba Ba has told skysports.com he is committed to sealing a dream move to England.
The Senegal star is currently AWOL from Hoffenheim as he seeks to seal a deal with a Premier League club.
He should currently be in La Manga with the rest of the Hoffenheim squad as they are undertaking a winter training camp.
But Ba refused to travel to Spain and is now looking to seal a move to England, with West Ham seemingly leading the race for his signature.
"All I know is my ambition is to play in the Premier League," he told skysports.com.
"If there is an opportunity I should take it and the club knows that."
However, Hoffenheim have been left outraged by Ba's behaviour and have again condemned him for not travelling to La Manga.
"Demba's behaviour will definitely see us coming up with consequences," warned general manager Ernst Tanner, speaking to Deutsche Presseagentur.
"He will be fined and have his contract terminated, but he will not be able to
play for any other club.
"We cannot accept his doings with regard to our club, our fans and his team-mates. That's a fact, he is acting on his own authority at the moment.
"We already had a situation with him in the past, he was also wanting to leave by all available means then.
"The manner Demba Ba is wanting to do it for a second time now, the way he is actually trying to pressurise his employer, is definitely unique in the whole Bundesliga."
