PSV Media - Andreas Isaksson put pen to paper on a four-year contract with PSV on Wednesday afternoon. The 26-year-old, who joins PSV from Manchester City, was Sweden's first-choice goalkeeper at the Euro 2008. Isaksson passed a medical earlier on the day.
59 caps
Isaksson, born in Trelleborg on 3 October 1981, spent the greater part of career as goalkeeper at Djurgården, after he had been scouted by Juventus at an early age. He came through the Youth set-up at the Italian club where he did not make the first team. After a four-year spell in the Swedish league, he joined Rennes in France in 2004, where he made 62 appearances in two seasons. Midway the 2006/07 season, he completed a move to Manchester City but did not feature much at the City of Manchester Stadium due to injury problems. He has gained 59 caps for the Swedish national team. Sweden did not survive the group stages at the Euro 2008 in Austria and Switzerland. They beat Greece 2-0 in their opening game, but suffered defeats against Spain (1-2) and Russia (0-2).
Ninth Swedish PSV player
Many Scandinavian players plied their trade at PSV before. The first Scandinavian ever to join PSV was the Swede Dan Enker. The full left back scored one goal in 23 league games from 1958 until 1960. Ralf Edström is undoubtedly the best-known Swedish player in PSV colours. The internationally renowned striker arrived in Eindhoven in 1973 and became the crowd's favourite when he scored 55 goals in 112 league games in four seasons. Until today, Klas Ingesson was the latest Swedish player in Eindhoven. The midfielder joined PSV in 1993, but stayed with PSV for only one season.
