Former Sheffield United midfielder Aymen Tahar is eyeing a move back to the UK in January, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the player.

Tahar is currently plying his trade in Japan with J1 League side Sagan Tosu after a globetrotting career across the world.

The 27-year-old started his career at Sheffield United after being spotted by the club's academy and he worked his way up through the ranks into the first-team.

Tahar managed just one first-team in the United team coming on as a substitute in an FA Cup clash with Hull with the then youngster finding his way into the Blades team blocked.

After leaving Sheffield United in 2010 the Algerian moved away to Romania and joined CS Gaz Metan Medias in February 2012.

Tahar impressed during his time in Romania with Gaz Metan Medias and his form saw him win a move to Romania's biggest club Steaua Bucharest in the summer of 2015.

The attacking midfielder then had a loan spell at Portuguese side Boavista and they were keen to make the move permanent, but were unable to agree a deal with Steaua

Tahar joined Sagan Tosu this summer, but sources close to the player have told HITC Sport that the Sheffield-born player is open to the idea of returning to the UK for personal reasons.
