Henriksson has faith in Odd

Norwegian outfit Odds BK have signed IFK Göteborg striker Sebastian Henriksson.

Norwegian Tippeligaen outfit Odds BK have signed IFK Göteborg striker Sebastian Henriksson on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

'It feels great'
The 28-year-old Henriksson, who most recently had an unsuccessful trial at AC Perugia after failing to agree a new contract, said of the move: "It feels great to have everything sorted out. Their ambitions are to finish higher in the league than last year. It will be great to try something different to the Allsvenskan."

Experienced player
Odd's club director Tom Helge Rönningis also expressed his pleasure with the deal, saying: "He's the kind of player we've been looking for and he has got a lot experience as well." Henriksson has already passed a medical and is expected to travel to Odd's training camp in La Manga, Spain, on Sunday.
