The hunt for Bashkim Kadrii is over.

The Danish winger has agreed to terms with Minnesota United after weeks of speculation linking the two, the team announced this afternoon.

Kadrii comes to United from FC Copenhagen, a Danish powerhouse that is sitting 11 points clear atop the Danish Superliga table. Copenhagen are on a ten-game unbeaten stream, with nine straight wins.

In 39 appearances with Copenhagen, he netted four goals and one assist. Often deployed as a left wing or left back, Kadrii joins the Loons with a clean bill of health after suffering ligament injuries in back-to-back seasons in 2013-14 and 2014-15. He is currently listed as a forward on the club website.

On the plus side, Kadrii is an aggressive but clean player, having last been suspended in 2013 for yellow card accumulation. A player won’t do the team any good sitting in the stands so it’s nice to see an aversion to disc

Kadrii has a long history playing for his country’s junior national teams and also notched an appearance with the senior team in 2011.
