Ken Kallaste’s hopes to move abroad, at IFK Norrköoing (SWE) were smashed by the IKF coach himself in an interview today to Swedish media, Folkbladet.
‘At the moment we will not sign an agreement with him,’ told Janne Andersson to the Swedish media ‘if meanwhile, he will go elsewhere, we cannot prevent that.’
He admits to know that Ken has been training with Kalju (yesterday he was in Finland where he played 60 minutes of a friendly game against FC Lahti). ‘
Andersson confirmed that signing Ken depended upon another player leaving in order to reduce the wages cost at the club. Therefore, unless Ken will commit himself with another club abroad, the doors seem to be open for him in Norrköping. ‘Let’s see if any player will leave now, in the Summer or at the end of the season,’ added Andersson.
The financial situation at the club is delicate, since the 2014 year was closed with a minus and apparently every kronor matters at the Swedish club.
It is an obvious disappointment for the 26-year-old left back who is now at a crossroads: either continuing with Kalju and wait for the Summer to bring better news from Sweden or taking another offer he has received from abroad.
In several interviews he confirmed that he has received offers elsewhere from Scandinavia, from Poland, from Scotland and also from Bulgaria.
Which could be the next move?
