Badly Translated Swedish Site RETURNS: English clubs looking for Aiesh - so high is ÖFK's price tag
This weekend, scouts from Leeds United were in place at Jämtkraft arena to follow Hosam Aiesh. Today, FD can reveal that more clubs in the English Championship show interest in the Östersund Star. But ÖFK will not sell itself cheaply.
In the weekend Norrlandsderby between Östersunds FK and GIF Sundsvall there were several foreign scouts in place to follow players in both teams.
FD could reveal that one of these was Leeds United, according to Östersunds Posten with Marcelo Bielsa himself, in place to scout Dino Islamovic and Hosam Aiesh ahead of the upcoming summer window.
- It is true that Leeds was in place today, confirmed Niclas Lidström, press officer at ÖFK, for the newspaper.
- More clubs were also in place.
24-year-old Aiesh - who last winter received a Turkish bid of about two million euros, which ÖFK was betting on - has been clear that he very much goes abroad this summer.
- I think everyone knows that I want to leave this summer. I have been to Östersunds FK for four and a half years this summer. I have had a great time and enjoy it, but it feels like I want to try something new and sometimes it has to do with time as well. I want to find something new and try something new for my development, he told the Football Channel after the 3-1 loss against Djurgården a couple of weeks ago.
Now it is moving further around Aiesh. According to FD's sources, Östersunds FK has been contacted by the two Championship clubs Nottingham Forest and Reading who both expressed a concrete interest. In Reading's case, one sees Aiesh as a direct replacement for the former ÖFK player Modou Barrow, who can soon be on his way to a club change, according to information for FD.
In Nottingham then before the Swedish national team player and former AIK gold hero Alexander Milosevic plays. Östersund will have put a price tag of at least two million euros, a bit over SEK 21 million, to release Aiesh this summer.
Last year, Östersunds FK sold most money from all Swedish clubs; 67 million - of which Saman Ghoddos to Amiens accounted for about 40 million of these.
