City and United to fight over Seedorf

Clarence Seedorf's cousin, Stefano Seedorf, is attracting interest from Championship duo Leicester City and Leeds United.

The 28-year-old is currently applying his trade with Italian lower league side Monza, but the former Barclays Premier League duo, who are both vying for promotion to the top flight this season, are also competing fro his services.

The midfielder's style of play resembles that of the multi European Cup winner, with the Monza man poising a venomous strike and an accurate passing ability.


Leicester manager Sven Goran Eriksson hasn't been afraid of making marque signings in the past at the Walkers Stadium, while Leeds manager Simon Grayson will be keen to add some much needed experience to his Elland Road midfield.

Both clubs have suffered something of a down-turn in their fortunes since being relegated from the Barclays Premier League in 2004, as both eventually dropped down to Npower League One, but with both sides back in The Npower Championship, and plotting promotion back to the Premier League, a signing of Seedorf's stature could be just the ticket for Leicester or Leeds.

His cousin, Clarence, is one of the most decorated footballers in the European football history, having won four European Cup's with three different clubs, and domestic titles in three different countries.

Like his cousin, Stefano started his career at Ajax, but after being released he's failed to make an impact during his spells in Greece and Italy and a move to England, to one of the country's big clubs could be the catalyst for an upturn in his career.
