face & kHRYSTAL close on SK switch
SK Gaming have confirmed they are close to signing H2k-Gaming's Johan "face" Klasson and Frej "kHRYSTAL" Sjöström.
The Swedish pair had been strongly linked with a move to SK Gaming for the past weeks, with HLTV.org reporting on Friday that Sjöström had left H2k's international ESL account.
SK have now confirmed on their official website that Klasson and Sjöström have joined the team for tonight's Extreme Masters qualifier, with a view to a permanent move.
According to SK Managing Director, Andreas "bds" Thorstensson, both teams have been locked in talks for the past weeks regarding a transfer, and he is hopeful a solution to the problem will soon be found.
"Over the last couple of weeks the legal department of SK has been negotiating with the lawyers of H2K and we have come up with an agreement that satisfies all parties," Thorstensson told the team's website.
"face and khrystal are pure talents and fit perfectly into the formation with allen, robban and walle. I have really big hopes for this lineup, and with the right dedication and motivation they will go very far."
SK will have their official debut with the new line-up tonight, against Glitz!, after which they will fly to Chengdu to compete in the Global Challenge.
SK's Counter-Strike roster stands as follows:
Jimmy "allen" Allén
Dennis "walle" Wallenberg
Robert "RobbaN" Dahlström
Johan "face" Klasson
Frej "kHRYSTAL" Sjöström
