Ray of hope for Azeem Azam?
English footballer of Arab and Asian origin Azeem Azam is the subject of transfer speculation - despite his limited on-field exposure due to injuries.
Azam's agents are in talks with France Ligue 1 clubs along with other European and Middle Eastern teams.
Sources reveal, "we are in talks with French League 1 clubs Bordeaux, along with Russian and Middle East Clubs".
Azam's agents are remaining tight lipped as to which other clubs they are speaking to, However, his Middle-Eastern representatives have revealed clubs in Qatar, UAE, Kuwait and Bahrain are being looked at. "We will take any offers very seriously" a source reveals.
Azam's Middle-eastern based Sports agency who now look after his affairs as third party ownership, confirmed. "We will do our level best to secure Azam the best deal we can, Azeem is a fine footballer when fit and sharp, having watched Azeem improve everyday in training and fitness, is a testament to Azeem's ability", said a representative.
Azam spent most part of this year training in the Middle East having turned down an earlier offer this year from Hungary.
Azam who has Arabic and Asian origin, has had a few stops and starts over the past season, having received an earlier offer from UAE and Italy in 2012/13 season.
It remains unclear why Azam did not opt for the UAE offer, sources have revealed it was due to a particular inept agent who was hampering that opportunity with delays and lies.
Azam's representatives have warned any agent trying to muscle on in, will be dealt with heavily. "There are some real spineless human beings that parade around as agents, who do not have a clue, and they give real agents a bad name, he went on to add, "One agent, in particular, acted absolutely disgracefully and although we won’t give him the oxygen of publicity by naming him, I will tell him exactly what I think of him when we see him,
