According to Fars News Agency quoting Youm al-Jadid. Reza Ghoochannejhad, has signed for Al Kuwait. He is currently in Cairo where the club is holding a training camp to finalise the deal: Reza's move . The official site has now confirmed that he has gone on a year's loan, so no fee will be involved.
He was conspicuous by his absence at the Family Fun Day on Sunday.
Notwithstanding a wonder goal at Leeds, I would not greatly regret his departure as I think he found the Championship hard to cope with. However, it does help to explain the club's efforts to take a risk with Andy Delort.
Pessimists are suggesting that Delort could be another Reza, unable to cope with the Championship. Ligue 2 is not the equivalent of the Championship, but neither is it the Ryman Premier League as some seem to be suggesting.
