Galway United have completed the signing of winger Tomi Saarelma from Finnish side FC Lahti.
-
Saarelma played at youth level with Chelsea before plying his trade in Switzerland, Estonia, Germany and Finland.
-
The former Finland underage international, who could feature in Saturday's SSE Airtricity League Premier Division clash against Longford Town, told the club’s official website: “So far, it's been very good.
-
"I've only been training this week, but hopefully I can be involved in my first game at the weekend. I just want to help the team to win, that's my only goal. How many minutes I play isn't in my head yet.
-
"I haven't played so many games recently because I've been injured, but I'm ready to play now, that's why I'm here. Match sharpness will come.
-
"I'm really looking forward to the Cup final in the middle of this month, it would be huge to help the team. It's what football is all about for me. It would be amazing to help the club to win its first Cup in a long time.
-
"For now, I'm concentrating on Longford Town on Saturday and I can't wait to get started at Galway United."
-
Galway manager Tommy Dunne believes the 26-year-old will add some invaluable quality and experience to his squad.
-
“Tomi has great experience from playing in Switzerland and Finland,” Dunne said.
-
“He's a wide player and technically he's very good. It was important for us to bring him in and to strengthen our squad.
-
"Tomi is tidy on the ball and he's quick. He would have a good knowledge of the various systems that we employ. He's hungry to do well for the club and we're delighted to have him on board.
-
"He's got to play some games to get a bit of sharpness back, but we feel that he has come in and integrated very well in training. He'll go straight into the squad for Longford Town at home on Saturday. We hope he can settle in quickly and make an impact with us."
