Following a four-day trial with Aarhus GF, American attacker Jeremiah White has agreed to a three-and-a-half year deal with the Danish second flight club.
After reaching a mutual agreement with FC Gueugnon of the French second division to nullify his contract in late 2006, the former Wake Forest standout went on trial first in Norway with Lyn Oslo and came away with high praise from the team.
White's schedule originally had him then trialing with Cercle Brugge of the Belgian Jupiler league until he was alerted to interest from Aarhus, a storied and much supported Danish team that was relegated from the SAS Liga last season.
"It's a very professional club, they're very ambitious," White explained to YA why he chose to sign with a second division side.
"They made some big signings, two national teamers from Sweden and Iceland (Olof Persson and Kári Árnason, respectively) and the expectation is that we go up."
While White has told those close to him that playing time wasn't the only issue with his former club, it was certainly a major one that he expects to change with AGF.
"We haven't talked about playing time, but they are bringing me in to play," he stated.
The aggressive offseason moves by team management have many pundits picking last year's bottom Superliga team as strong contenders to bounce back to the top flight.
AGF, who stand six points back of a promotion place at the extended winter break, resume league play against visiting Fremad Amager on April 1st.
