Toulouse tie up Jönsson deal

Toulouse FC have secured the signature of IF Elfsborg's Swedish midfielder Jon Jönsson on a four-year contract.

European hope
The 23-year-old scored five goals in 26 league games for the Swedish champions but will now link up with fellow countryman Johan Elmander at Toulouse, becoming the club's second signing of the summer after goalkeeper Rudy Riou. FC Lorient striker Pierre-André Gignac has also agreed to join but the contract has yet to be confirmed by the French Football Federation due to a dispute with LOSC Lille Métropole. Toulouse finished third in Ligue 1 in 2006/07 and will enter the UEFA Champions League third qualifying round in August.
