According to reports on the well-regarded Ipswich Town fans website TWTD, loanee Freddie Veseli could be linking up with a Bosnian club in the New Year.
Defender Veseli joined Vale on loan at the start of the season after Ipswich manager Mick McCarthy stated that the defender was not in his plans. The youngster has made nine appearances for the Valiants so far.
Veseli has been used in both the right-back and centre-half positions this season and earned much praise for his performance against Rochdale on Saturday.
However, Vale are considerably over their planned playing budget this campaign and fellow defender Chris Robertson was reportedly asked to leave on loan to help the club’s finances. The current financial situation would appear to make any permanent Vale move for Veseli unlikely.
According to TWTD: “Freddie Veseli, currently on loan with League One Port Vale, is close to agreeing a January move to FK Sarajevo, according reports in Bosnia.”
FK Sarajevo are owned by Malaysian businessman Vincent Tan who also owns Cardiff City. Meanwhile, another Sarajevo club FK Olimpic and Croatian side Dinamo Zagreb have also both shown interest in the defender.
