Poaching Umeå: Hanna to Linköping, Sanna to AIK??

Linköping FC wants to take the next step after defeating Umeå in the Swedish Cup. They know they need to get at least one more top player to do that. Linköping's chairman Christer Mård reveals that their prime target is Umeå's Hanna Ljungberg. Hanna, who has been with Umeå since 1998, says that she will not consider any contract proposals until after the UEFA Women's Cup semifinals the next two weekends.

Linköping is also looking south. Malmö FF's Martin Sjögren confirms that Linköping has been in touch regarding Malmö's national team players Therese Sjögran and Asthildur Helgadottir: "and so has other clubs, but Linköping seems to be more eager than the others". Malmö hasn't started any contract negotiations with their players, since they want to get the Football Associations ruling on their Damallsvenskan license for 2007 first. Malmö is in trouble because of their shaky economy and the licensing committee will make their decision within two weeks. Malmö's management seems worringly uncertain on the outcome, though.

Newcomers AIK, that spent one year in Damallsvenskan 2005, has learned that dominating the 1st division means nothing in Damallsvenskan. Without serious reinforcements you will suffer Jitex' fate. So AIK is in talks with Umeå and national team goalkeeper Sofia Lundgren as well as Umeå and Finland defender Sanna Valkonen. Lundgren tells tabloid Expressen that she is trying to find an agreement with AIK, but she is not prepared to take a pay-cut to move. But she expects a lot of tougher matches with AIK: "There are so many good players in front of you in Umeå, that you hardly get anything to do". She also confirms that Valkonen might end up in the Stockholm club. "It would be fun if there were two of us that moved down south".
