Demba Savage signs for FC Honka

That’s about the size of it. I’m very pleased about this, Savage is a skillful, quality player and has deserved his chance for a long time. I’m sure he’ll do a good job for Honka.

It’s good that Finnish clubs have the financial might to sign players like Savage from decent Ykkönen clubs. That has been a problem, as clubs have either not scouted players at that level or haven’t been able to sign them because they couldn’t afford the fees. Honka are currently cash rich after selling Patronen and Maanoja, and using their money to good effect.

I seem to remember accusing Honka of an ‘unimaginative transfer policy’ a while ago. After the last couple of moths, I think I can say that that was 100% horseshit. Sorry.
