Lisa De Vanna to AIK?!

Australia's leading World Cup goalscorer Lisa De Vanna will suit up for AIK when they meet HJK Helsinki in a friendly tomorrow, Sunday. That's about all the club's website has to say, but they promise more information on Monday.
I don't know if this is just a test or an actual signing, but if they have signed/will sign De Vanna, I would say that's just about what the football doctor ordered. AIK's dismal scoring record was what kept them walking the relegation line the entire last season and no one they have signed since has any great finishing qualities. Lisa De Vanna has. She's got great speed, she is reasonable good with the ball and she knows where the goal is. The 23 year old scored 4 goals for Australia in the World Cup and was named in the World Cup All Star Team. Her major down-side is that she rarely plays an entire 90 minutes for Australia, but usually comes in as a second half substitute. If this is a fitness issue, AIK must try to amend that. They can't afford to use her only 50 % of the time.
