New Signing #2 - Introduction to Leon Andreasen

Leon Andreasen was signed on Tuesday from Werder Bremen. He's a 24 year old Danish international who plays defensive midfield. He began his professional career at local Danish Aarhus GF, for whom he made 105 appearances and scored 17 goals. In July 2005 he moved to German Bundesliga side Werder Bremen where he made 36 appearances scoring 4 goals. Having featured quite often in his first season, he found his chances limited thereafter and in January 2007 went on loan to FSV Mainz 05. He managed 15 appearances for Mainz and scored four goals in his first seven games, but unfortunately, and not a good omen for us, was unable to help them avoid relegation.
