Confirmed.

Welcome to the greatest football club on the planet :)

Hopefully you prove the predictions wrong and become an instant 1st team success.

I have faith :scarfe2:

Ps . Stay off twitter, you will be branded the worst player ever even if you rarely play.

If anyone speaks Finnish please feel free to translate..

Apparently, got a foot injury, couldn't train, dunno if he had it when he came, or like Roberts he mysteriously got it within a few days of arrival.

BUt, HE IS ALIVE

A bit late for this season but there may be time to get him working with Jansson for next year.

In short:

- He has been injured since arriving in England

- It’s getting better

- Trains every day at the gym on his strength

- He is living in the city centre

- He is already used to driving on the left

- He has had time to meet a Finnish friend living in Darlington, who plays for Boro

- Leeds had scouted him for some time, seeing him in Finnish national u18 games

- He doesn’t know how good the u23 team is because hasn’t actually trained with them

- the plan is still to play u23 games before joining first team training in the summer, then maybe going on loan

- at the end there is ridiculous comparison to Norman Hunter

Is that 2 steps forward and 1 back or the reverse Gandi, when it comes to providing another credible (and USABLE) CB?

I sometimes think there's a department of EFL which is so devoted to bringing us down that they're hiring hit men to injure our new players as they get off the plane or the train on their way to ER. :evil:
