Celtic sign Kylla Sjoman


Wednesday, 28 August 2013


Celtic today announced the signing of Canadian internationalist Kylla Sjoman.
 
The much-travelled 26-year-old made her international bow earlier this year against England.

 
The versatile left-sided player  has dual nationality with Canada and Finland and brings with her experience of from her time playing in America, Germany and England.
 
Comfortable at left-back, centre-back or in midfield, she is a strong, athletic player and is something of a free kick specialist.
 
Commenting on her move to one of the biggest clubs in the world, Kylla said: "It's pretty exciting signing for Celtic.
 
"Everyone around the world knows of Celtic. The football culture in Scotland is much more passionate than in Canada, and I’m really looking forward to getting started."
 

Celtic Manager David Haley added: "We are delighted to be able to welcome Kylla to Celtic.
 

"She comes with an impressive résumé and she will strengthen what is already a talented squad.
 

"Kylla comes in, having played professionally in Germany and semi-professionally down south with Doncaster Belles.
 

"She is well aware of the expectations of this club and I'm positive she will make an instant impact.
 

"She goes straight into the squad for the match this Sunday against Rangers."
