August 27, 2015

Iranian international midfielder Ehsan Hajsafi is on the verge of signing for Bundesliga second division side VfL Bochum.

The 25-year old flew to Germany on Wednesday to pass the medical tests and finalize the deal with Bochum officials. It is believed that the transfer fee for the Sepahan player is around €1.5m.
After a successful performance at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil last summer, Hajsafi caught the eye of a couple of English clubs including Fulham and Hull City but the deals fell through due to work permit issues.
In 2009, Hajsafi was selected by as the most promising player in Asian football.
Hajsafi has represented Iran at the 2011 AFC Asian Cup, 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2015 AFC Asian Cup.
