Now it all seems to be in order as the organizations have agreed on the transfer fee which allows the 19-year-old player to move to Heroic.
"It feels great! I’ve had a good time with Tricked, but am looking very much forward to starting up with Heroic, who have the ambitions and also the quality to become a really strong contender internationally.
I know a couple of the guys very well, but of course, I have to get used to their style of play and find my own position, but there is such a great vibe on this team, it will not be a problem. Everybody is hungry and ambitious on the team, and I look forward to playing with them, but also to be a part of the set-up provided by RFRSH. Everything here is top professional, and I can’t wait to get started."
Nikolaj Nyholm, the CEO at RFRSH, the company behind Heroic, gave the following statement to HLTV.org about the buyout of the young Dane.
"We are very happy that Heroic signed one of the brightest talents out there. Jakob "JUGI" Hansen has already now established himself as a great player and a profile on Tricked, and by joining Heroic, he will be a part of a young, hungry roster, which we see as a strong contender to be a part of the international top 10.
Needless to say, we’re very satisfied that the transfer is now in place and he can join the team with immediate effect."
