Hamburg announce Albin Ekdal signing

Bundesliga outfit Hamburger SV have moved to confirm the signing of Swedish midfielder Albin Ekdal from Cagliari.

The 25-year-old signed a four-year deal with the Imtech Arena outfit after the two clubs have agreed on a transfer fee, believed to be €4.5 million.

Following yet another impressive season in Serie A, Ekdal was linked with quite a few of Italy’s top sides, but it looks as though Hamburg were the first club to make their interest concrete.

The Red Shorts thus secured the first marquee signing of the transfer window, although they have previously recruited Bayer Leverkusen reject Emir Spahic.

Albin Ekdal came through the youth ranks at Brommapojkarna and also played for Juventus, Siena and Bologna in Italian Serie A.

The attacking midfielder spent last four seasons at Cagliari, making 116 league appearances and scoring 8 goals.

Ekdal has been capped 18 times by Sweden and he started all five Euro 2016 qualifiers.
