|Go to Helsingborgs! Mon 2nd Aug 1999 15:59 |
Contrary to this morning's speculation it seems Andreas Jakobsson has turned down the chance to join Town and is staying in Sweden. Earlier it had been reported that Helsingborgs had accepted Town's £1 million offer and the signing seemed a formality. It has been suggested that Jakobsson might be after a move to a bigger club than Town. Back to the drawing board for George Burley then...
|Andreas Jakobsson set to join Town? Mon 2nd Aug 1999 11:17 |
Reports from Sweden suggest that Andreas Jakobsson is set join Town either today or tomorrow. His current club Helsingborgs are reported to have agreed a fee and all that remains is for the Swedish international defender to agree terms with Town. Jakobsson has made 9 full international appearances for Sweden and is rated as one of the best defenders in the Swedish league. He is seen as George Burley as a direct replacement for Tony Mowbray, suggesting that 5-3-2 may once more be a formation often used by Town, despite the use of 4-4-2 in Saturday's poor display against FC Twente.
