Kalmari leaves Djurgården for AIK

Newcomers AIK announced the probably most sensational transfer yet: Finland's Laura Kalmari leaves Djurgården/Älvsjö after two seasons and joins what must be the most ambitious newcomers ever in Damallsvenskan. AIK has been looking for a forward for some time, but this was probably more than anyone had expected. The signing of the 27 year old FIFA World Player nominee, together with the previous deals with Sweden's and Umeå's Sofia Lundgren and two other Finland national team players, Sanna Valkonen (from Umeå) and Jessica Julin (from Kopparbergs/Göteborg and previously Umeå), puts the expectations on AIK way higher than just avoiding relegation.
Djurgården/Älvsjö's sport director Micke Söderman says there is no reason for panic: "We still have a very strong squad, and we will probably add yet another player to it". Söderman adds that Kalmari gave signals already during the fall, that she might want to leave. There are several reasons for that, Söderman explains: Finland didn't manage to qualify for the World Cup, she has just married and she has her education (teaching degree) to pay attention to. "I think Laura was convinced that a new club environment and playing with old friends from Finland and Umeå will be a like new start for her."
