After a long career in the Israeli league, Guy Melamed set out on an adventure in Europe in the summer of 2020 and joined the Scottish St. Johnstone. Well, it is not inconceivable that the Israeli striker’s wandering journey will continue this summer, according to a report in the English media.
According to the report, he is in demand at three teams in England – Portsmouth, Sunderland and Ipswich. The teams mentioned are currently playing in the third league, but they are all in the fight to qualify for the sub-league (the championship) and they will try to seduce the Israeli scorer if they manage to get the desired ticket.
Melamed, who has signed a contract for just one season at St Johnston, will be a free agent this summer – so the three teams from England, as well as others who will take an interest in him, will not have to pay a transfer fee. The 28-year-old striker has been involved in 15 games this season in all competitions and has scored five goals and three assists.
The three candidates to take him on – Portsmouth, Sunderland and Ipswich – have all played at one point or another in the Premier League. In Portsmouth, as I recall, Eyal Berkowitz played and coached Avraham Grant.
