Djurgården sporting director Bosse Andersson has told the Swedish media Jonas Olsson will not be leaving the club in this window, despite the reported interest from Ipswich Town

Fotboll Direkt say the former Sweden international has been linked with the Championship side in recent weeks after Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy travelled to Sweden this month on a scouting trip.

Speaking to the Swedish football outlet, Andersson was quizzed about Olsson leaving the Djurgården in this window: “We have many good players, and there have been inquiries. Specifically with Jonas Olsson and other players it’s all about speculation from the media, and there’s nothing I will comment on. You can say never in the future, but nothing will happen now.”

Earlier this month, McCarthy attended the game between Djurgården and Halmstad at the Tele2 Arena, with claims in the Swedish media the Ipswich Town boss was casting an eye on Olsson. The veteran was quizzed about a potential move back to England, but he refused to comment.

Olsson spent eight seasons at West Brom after joining the club from Dutch side NEC in 2008. However, the 33-year-old was reduced to handful of game in the first half of last season by West Brom manager Tony Pulis, which ultimately signalled the end of the player’s time at the Hawthorns.
