Leeds United could be in for Jo Inge Berget as the former Cardiff City and Celtic striker has reportedly asked for a move back to England. Berget currently plies his trade for Malmo in the Swedish football league.
Berget has reportedly told the Swedish outfit that he would still want challenges of the highest level so that he can test his footballing ability at the peak. Berget also mentioned that he would want to go back to England where he used to play a few years back.
The 27-year-old would be a good player to add to the squad for Leeds United over the course of the upcoming transfer windows this January or else the one next summer before the World Cup. Berget is a regular international for the Norway national team and is still going strong.
As far as his performances in Malmo are concerned, Berget has been in fine form this season for his club and has already scored nine goals in just 22 games for his club.
While Leeds already possess a highly potent attack with goals coming in from every player, the addition of Berget will certainly add another dimension to their offence.
Lately, Berget has been playing as a winger for Malmo which will aid Thomas Christiansen in setting up an attack with versatile players all along the forward line. The 27-year-old was part of a Premier League campaign with Cardiff City but his side was relegated at the end of the season.
Even though Berget did not feature in a lot of games, he gathered experience of playing in the physical and fast-paced English League and will fit in with ease in the English Championship as well.
With Berget’s recent comments regarding his future, it seems that the Norway international will be returning to England at least by the start of the next season.
