FC Nordsjaelland goalkeeper Jesper Hansen has welcomed reported interest from West Ham and admits that he wants to leave Denmark in January.

The goalkeeper put in a decent showing during the club's barren run in the UEFA Champions League, drawing interest from Italian clubs Udinese and Bologna.

And now 27-year-old Hansen is ready to leave Denmark and has his heart set on a transfer in the winter window.

After reports that West Ham were considering a bid emerged, he said: "I saw the news after training and I have to say that I'm flattered.

"I can't say that I've spoken with them, there isn't an offer on the table. But, my ambition is to play abroad and I hope to secure a transfer this January or after the season.

"If clubs are interested now then I just might be able to fulfil my dream," Hansen told bold.dk.

The goalkeeper's contract runs out next year and Hansen is convinced that FC Nordsjaelland will let him leave if the right offer comes along after 12 years with the club.
