Ninjas in Pyjamas have announced that they have secured the services of Aleksi "allu" Jalli for ESL One Katowice.
The Finnish talent has joined NiP on a short-term deal with a view to signing a permanent contract should he manage to impress at the upcoming major, next month.
He had been playing for NiP as a stand-in for the last week and was favoured over Marcus "Delpan" Larsson, who also played for the team on trial.

"Firstly, I have to say that allu is a player that I have been impressed with for quite some time, and it is going to be fun to see what he can bring to the table," NiP owner Emil "HeatoN" Christensen told Aftonbladet.se.
"Moreover, I want to thank 3DMAX, on the behalf of myself and the team, for making the transition run smoothly by acting as true professionals throughout the process.
"I want to wish allu the best of luck with NiP and 3DMAX all the best for the future."
NiP remain silent on what the future holds for Maikelele, who is contracted to the organisation.
Last week, NiP CEO Per Lilliefelth admitted that loaning out the Swedish AWPer to another team was an option, stressing that the player could not leave unless he was released from his contract.
