US midfielder Bedoya signs with Helsingborg

Former Rangers midfielder Alejandro Bedoya is returning to

Swedish football after signing a short-term contract with champion


The club said in a statement late Friday that the 25-year-old

American will train with the squad on Sunday.

With Rangers placed under bankruptcy protection and now playing

in the fourth tier of Scottish football, Helsingborg called the

deal a ”win-win” situation.

Helsingborg Sports Director Jesper Jansson said Bedoya ”is a

player type we need.”

Bedoya previously spent two and a half years in Sweden with

Orebro SK before joining Rangers in 2011.

The Swedish season started in late March.
