City Sign Swedish International Engvall

Bristol City have completed the signing of the highly-rated Swedish international forward Gustav Engvall from IFK Gothenburg for an undisclosed fee.

The 20-year-old has signed a three-year contract with a further year’s option.

Engvall, who hails from Kalmar in the South East of Sweden, began his career at Farjestadens in the third tier before departing in 2012.

Having made his IFK debut aged 17, he racked up a total of 16 goals in 64 appearances for the two-time UEFA Cup winners.

Head coach Lee Johnson said: “I’m delighted we’ve been able to bring Gustav to Ashton Gate.

“This is another big transfer for us and it’s taken a lot of hard work from a lot of people.

“He’s a Swedish international who has excellent finishing ability. I’m sure he will adjust quickly to the pace and tempo of the Sky Bet Championship and when he does he’ll be really dangerous.”

Twice capped by his country at senior level, Engvall won the Newcomer of the Year award in his native top flight for his performances in 2014 and was a Swedish Cup winner the following season.

The highly-rated youngster has three goals in ten appearances for Sweden Under-21s, and will join up with the squad later this week ahead of their European qualifiers against Croatia and Spain.

Engvall becomes City’s 12th first team recruit of the summer, following on from Josh Brownhill, Gary O’Neil, Diego De Girolamo, Lee Tomlin, Hordur Magnusson, Callum O’Dowda, Ivan Lucic, Tammy Abraham, Adam Matthews, Taylor Moore and Jamie Paterson. The club has also recruited youngsters Jack Challis, Kodi Lyons-Foster and Shabazz Omofe for the development group.
