Kazim back to the Premier League?

Former Blade Colin Kazim-Richards has been linked with a move back to the English Premier League after an impressive debut season in Turkey and a good Euro 2008 tournament for his adopted country.

The winger was plucked from the reserve team of Brighton and Hove Albion by former United manager Neil Warnock for just £150,000 and, after less than a season at Bramall Lane and just one goal, he was sold to Fenerbahçe for £1.3million. After making his debut for Turkey (the country of his mother’s birth) against Brazil and scoring in the Champions League against Chelsea, Kazim-Richards’ (or Kazim-Kazim as he is known in Turkey) name was well and truly in the spotlight.

Coming to a Premier League ground near you? – Colin Kazim-Richards against Robbie Fowler.

Turkey’s run to the Euro 2008 semi-finals further accentuated his rise to prominence, and has led to rumours linking the Londoner with a move to Manchester City, for a fee of around £4m.  Kazim-Richards’ story has often been compared to a work of fiction – but lining up at Eastlands against possible signings like Ronaldinho, two years after leaving Brighton and Hove Albion, could be the ultimae footballing fairytale.
