Mixed short news

National team head coach Thomas Dennerby will try to have an extra look at Yolanda Odenyo, former Bälinge and AIK player, when she returns from her college in Oklahoma to spend the summer vacation in Sweden. Odenyo hasn't played in Sweden since spring 2005, but Dennerby says that she was a very good player already when she left "and if she has continued to develop in USA, she might be interesting for the national team." Odenyo will be playing for 1st division side Gusk during the summer, since appearing for a Damallsvenskan side would jeopardize her college eligibility.

Linköping FC has confirmed that they have made an agreement with Nigerian national team players Maureen Mmadu and Faith Ikidi. They former Qbik players are expected to show up in Linköping next week, depending on how long time the immigration authorities needs. Linköping has, without success, been trying to find a world class defensive midfielder and when Anna-Kaisa Rantanen suffered a long-time injury the midfield problem became urgent. Mmadu and Ikidi are signed as full-time professionals, but their compensation will be very far from the in Nigerian media rumoured SEK 54,000 a month. "Those figures are absurd", says LFC sport director Patrik Stålhammar, "they are just getting the normal compensation for foreign players".

Jill Oakes has turned down the offer from Falköpings KIK she recieved after her successfull trial there a couple of weeks ago. Falköping's Bengt Tjus says that Oakes, who failed to impress Linköping FC at an earlier try-out, would have been a certain starter with Falköping. On the other hand is Falköping's signing of Nigerian forward star Cyntia Uwak moving along nicely and she will join the club in May.
