AIK Solna full-back could make move to top league this month

AIK Solna right-back Markus Jonsson could be set for a January move to England, claims his agent. The 28-year-old defender helped AIK to last season's league title and his agent, Oliver Cabrera, insists he has attracted interest from Europe's top leagues. The Sweden international, who is also called "Mr 100 per cent" due to his accuracy from the penalty spot, is not looking to sign a new deal with AIK and Cabrera expects the club to cash in this month. "We are looking at different options and they're about clubs in the big leagues," he told Fotbolldirekt.se. "That's why it's taking time, but I am convinced that things are going to be solved." Jonsson made the move to Solna from hometown club Oster in November 2005. He soon established himself as first-choice right-back and is ready to try his luck overseas after scoring 14 goals in 89 appearances.

Overseas solution

"He won't stay at AIK," Cabrera added. "I am convinced that there will be a solution abroad during January. You can never know for sure, but things are looking good for Markus. "I am not at all worried about not finding a foreign club for him to join." English Championship sides QPR, Preston and West Brom have all been linked with signing Jonsson, although pressed on which clubs were interested, Cabrera repeated: "It's clubs from the big leagues." Jonsson made his international debut in 2007 and has gone on to make a total of four international appearances.
