Video: Former Leeds United star Max Gradel scores superb goal for Ivory Coast

Max Gradel netted an excellent over for Ivory Coast in their African Nations Cup match with Cameroon.

Max Gradel continued his impressive African Cup of Nations with a superb strike against Cameroon.

The winger hit an unstoppable shot from 25 yards out to open the scoring in their Group D clash.

It was his second goal of the tournament, and came with his first shot on goal during the game.

Gradel currently plays for Ligue 1 side Saint Etienne, who are currently placed as high as fourth in the division.

He signed a new contract with the club last September, reported The BBC, which runs until 2017.

Gradel is revered by many Leeds United fans for an individually successful spell at the club before being sold in 2011.

He of course would be a perfect fit back at his old side who are in need of a winger to add to their attack, but did help them out recently.

Leeds confirmed via their official website comments from new loan signing Sol Bamba, who said his fellow Ivorian Gradel had encouraged him to join the club.
