KuPS signs a loan deal with Juho Pirttijoki

KuPS announced today that they have signed the Finnish U21 Captain Juho Pirttijoki on a loan deal from GIF Sundsvall until the end of the season.

21-Year old Juho will be eligible to play for KuPS after the Finnish transfer window opens up on 10th July. The central defender made his debut in the Veikkausliiga with HIFK in 2016 and made a big impact under the current KuPS head coach Jani Honkavaara. After the 2016 season, GIF Sundsvall signed the player on a 3-year deal but he has only made 7 appearances in the Allsvenskan so far and he need more game time to develop. At KuPS he can do exactly that under a coach who is familiar on what he can do.

Pirttijoki will help them in defending the goal area which has been a big issue for them this season. He is excellent in set pieces on both sides of the pitch so it will add another dimension to their play.
