Zeli Ismail Can Strike Fear Into League 1 Full-Backs

18 July 2014

Manager Shaun Derry believes that Notts County’s latest signing, Wolverhampton Wanders winger Zeli Ismail, can cause Sky Bet League 1 defences plenty of problems in 2014.15.

Ismail has arrived at Meadow Lane on a six-month loan deal and adds a threat in the wide areas.

Derry was delighted to get the winger into the club and is looking forward to letting him loose in the new campaign. 

“It’s great for us, he did really well at Burton last year and he’s really highly thought of at Wolves as well,” he told Magpie Player. 

“He’s now took that next step into League 1 and we hope that we can help him develop as a footballer.

“More importantly, for us, we’re hoping he’ll make an improvement to a squad that’s quickly developing.

“He’s an out and out wideman and, looking at the loss of Jamal Campbell-Ryce, I enjoy the wide lads and watching them.

“I like it when they’re really on the front foot and that’s what Zeli brings.

“He brings a lot of pace and a vision where he gets the ball down, attacks his full-back and gets the ball into the box.”
