|Iran's Mehrdad Pooladi nears European transfer||
Mehrdad Pooladi is still playing in the Iranian Premier League but an impressive World Cup may have provided the platform for a move to Europe.
The left-back made a combined 6.3 tackles and interceptions per game in Brazil, which was up there with the highest in the competition.
Iran held Nigeria to a goalless draw and were only undone by Lionel Messi at the death, with Pooladi playing every minute and being awarded man of the match in the opening game.
Only when Iran pushed out to score against Bosnia did their defence really come unstuck and Pooladi hinted that he is ready for bigger challenges.
It’s reported that Southampton, Swansea and Hull City are carefully watching developments surrounding left-back.
