Smajic and Johansen signs with Malmö FF

Bälinge's 22 year old left back Nera Smajic has agreed with Malmö FF on a contract. Smajic says that her ambition is to qualify for the full national team (she has extensive youth team experience) and she thinks Malmö offers a great environment for her development. Malmö's coach Jörgen Pettersson has been looking for a left footed defender a long time and is pleased with the signing.
Pettersson is also very pleased that Nanna Johansen, the 20 year old Denmark national team player who had a three month "try-out" contract with Malmö last season, has decided to sign a one year deal with an option for another year. The young winger already has more than 20 caps for Denmark and coach Pettersson calls her "one of the most promising players in Scandinavia".
Since Malmö FF got their Damallsvenskan license renewed, things have been looking brighter for the rough times club. All players from the 2006 squad has declared that they want to continue with the club and there is even hope that Icelandic forward stand-out Asthildur Helgadottir will continue playing. "She can obviously not continue communting the way she did this season [more than 30 trips between Iceland and Sweden], but we are hopefull findning a solution for her." Pettersson also confirms Malmö's interest in Djurgården's danish midfielder Katrine Pedersen.
