Fulham and Cardiff are in the race to sign Iran winger Ehsan Hajsafi, along with Premier League outfit Hull City according to the Daily Star.

The Iran international was part of the squad which put in an impressive performance out in Brazil for this summers World Cup.

The winger is available to sign on a free transfer this summer, and Fulham and Cardiff are keen, but face a tough battle with Premier League side Hull City also having deep interest in the playmaker.

Hajsafi can also play left back, aswell as a winger, and is known for getting plenty of assists on the pitch.

It will be a very tough battle for Fulham and Cardiff if Steve Bruce's Hull City are  chasing the Iran star aswell

The twenty-four year old has been a professional footballer at Iran Pro League side Sepahan, since 2006.

Whilst making one-hundred and eighty-four appearances for Sepahan and scoring twenty-four goals, the Kashan born winger has made sixty-four appearances for his country, scoring three goals, whilst wearing the captain’s armband several times.

The Premier League would be a very attractive option for Hajsafi, which could overshadow the interest Fulham and Cardiff are showing on him.

Due to the Iran playmaker being well known to assist players when he can, Felix Magath no doubt will be hoping that he sets his sights on joining his Fulham side in the Championship, to help assist McCormack and to justify his price tag.
