Elemander heads back to Sweden

Feyenoord striker Johan Elemander has agreed to spend a season on loan with Djurgårdens IF.

Feyenoord striker Johan Elemander has agreed to spend a season on loan with Djurgårdens IF FF.

Temporary move
The Swedish Under-21 international, who signed for Feyenoord in 2000, agreed to the temporary move to Stockholm after failing to win a regular place in the UEFA Cup holders' starting line-up.

'I will be stronger'
"This is the best solution," said Elemander. "I probably won't have that many opportunities to play this season with [Pierre] Van Hooijdonk and [Bonaventure] Kalou in front of me. I hope to play a lot in Stockholm so I will be stronger when I return." He will leave Feyenoord after this week's matches against Fenerbahçe SK and Real Madrid CF.
