Real Betis eyeing move for Cadiz centre-back Ivan Kecojevic

Real Betis are showing strong interest in Ivan Kecojevic.

According to the football transfer rumours in Spanish media (Football Espana), Real Betis are eyeing move for Cadiz centre-back Ivan Kecojevic.

The Montenegro international joined Cadiz from FC Zürich on a free transfer in August 2017. His contract expires in the summer of 2018.

Ivan Kecojevic has played 18 times for Cadiz since signing from FC Zürich, scoring three goals.

The 29-year-old is considered to be one of the best centre-backs in Montenegro.

Quique Setién is looking to shore up his defensive options and Cadiz’s Ivan Kecojevic happens to be a target.

The report claims that Real Betis manager has extensively scouted Ivan Kecojevic and is considering a move for the centre-back.

Kecojevic is a traditional defender. He is solid while defending and holds his position perfectly.

According to Football Espana, “Real Betis want to complete a deal for Cadiz defender Ivan Kecojevic in light of a long-term injury suffered to Zouhair Feddal. The 29-year-old defender has been a rock at heart of Los Gaditanos defence – which has conceded just 14 goals in 25 league games this season. The Montenegrin netted in Cadiz’s remarkable 5-3 Copa Del Rey win at Betis earlier this season and his height (1.90m) and presence means Betis have earmarked him as Feddal’s ideal replacement.”
