Tasnim – READING, Iranian international midfielder Saeid Ezatolahi has been linked with a move to Championship side Leeds United.
This is a name that won’t be familiar to the vast majority of Leeds United fans. However, the Iranian central midfielder could be a gamble worth taking for The Whites.
Ezatolahi was injured for the majority of the time he was on loan at Reading last season, when he made the loan move from Russian top tier side FC Rostov. However, he impressed many Reading fans in the games that they did see him play, footballleagueworld.co.uk reported.
Ezatolahi is available on a free this summer with the expiration of his contract at Rostov.
Considering he was loaned out in the last season of his contract, he’s unlikely to sign another deal with the Russian side, which could make teams sit up and take interest in the 22-year-old.
