Dwamena is not for sale - FC Zurich manager

FC Zurich boss Uli Forte says the club will not be swayed by money in relation to the possible transfer of prolific Ghanaian forward Raphael Dwamena.

Newly promoted English Premier League side Brighton had an £8m bid for the Ghanaian turned down by the Swiss side on Thursday.

The Swiss side bought the 21-year-old striker for about £250,000 just six months ago from Austria Lustenau, and stand to make a huge profit if they allow him to move.

But Uli Forte, speaking after his side’s 2-0 victory over FC Sion which sent them top of the Swiss Super League reiterated the club president’s remarks concerning the sale suggesting the player is not for sale.

“I am glad I have a president who is not lured by a few zeros,” he said.

“Fortunately, Raphael looks sensible. He cannot be influenced by such sums. He knows what he has at the Zurich, and he still has to learn and work.”

Dwamena made his debut for the Black Stars in May against Ethiopia where he scored a brace in a 5-0 win.
