Jonson secures Swedish homecoming

The Swedish international midfielder Mattias Jonson has signed a three-and-a-half year deal with Djurgårdens IF.

Norwich spell
The 31-year-old joins the Stockholm-based club from Norwich City FC after just one season in England. Despite failing to score in 28 games as Nigel Worthington's team were relegated, he still impressed and will link up with Djurgården in August ahead of the second qualifying round of the UEFA Cup.

Six-year absence
The move brings the Gothenburg-born player back to Sweden after a six-year absence, predominantly at Danish side Brøndby IF. He has been a key member of the international squad though, scoring nine goals in 46 appearances. Allsvenskan outfit Djurgården will hope he can produce that form at club level.
