• A versatile defender who can play anywhere across the back line. Tall enough to play at centre-back and has sufficient pace to operate as a full-back.

• Has developed his left foot to become as strong on each side.

• Newcastle United FC are among several foreign clubs to have shown an interest in signing him, but he opted to stay at HJK, signing a new three-year contract in April.
