Engvall returns to former club on loan

City striker Gustav Engvall has rejoined IFK Gothenburg on loan.

The 21-year-old left the Swedish outfit in August 2016 to pen a three-year-deal at Ashton Gate. 

The Swedish international has already experienced two loan moves back to his native country in the past 12 months, both with Djurgardens IF. 

Engvall's eight goals helped the Stockholm club end their league campaign third in Allsvenskan, qualifying for the Europa League. 

During his previous spell with IFK, Engvall netted 16 times in 64 appearances. The club will be looking to improve on their tenth-placed finish in last season's Allsvenskan table. 

Engvall’s loan move with IFK will expire on July 30th, although City have the option to recall the striker following the reopening of the summer transfer window.

Since arriving in BS3, Engvall has made nine appearances for Lee Johnson’s side and is yet to register a goal.
