Stone Sports Management is pleased to announce that Finnish Striker Juho Mäkelä has signed until the end of the 2013/14 Seaon plus a one year option with Swiss Super League and 2013-14 UEFA Cup Group Stage Participants St. Gallen.  St. Gallen is currently 4th in the standings and was in need of an unattached Striker after having three strikers go down with long term injuries since summer.

The deal came rather quickly once St. Gallen was informed of Mäkelä's availability through Stone Sports Management's Swiss Partner Gold Kick.  Both St. Gallen's Head Trainer Jeff Saibene and Sports Director Heinz Peischl had previously worked with Makela during his stint with FC Thun in 2007 on loan from Hearts FC.  The Finnish Striker will fit right in with the German-speaking club having spent last season with Sandhausen SV in the German Bundesliga 2 after signing with the German club on the last day of the January 2013 Transfer Window

"I am very pleased for Juho to continue his career in the Swiss Super League with St. Gallen.  I must commend Juho for staying fit during these past two months while waiting patiently for a new club that fit his competitive ambitions and financial requirements. St. Gallen is a win-win situation since the club was in desperate need for front line help, and Juho has previously worked with the trainer and sports director.  I want to thank everyone at Gold Kick for their professional work and making Juho feel at home in Swtizerland. Juho has already made an impression his first days on the pitch with his new club, and I look forward to seeing him score goals as he has previously in Germany, Finland and Australia," remarked Agent Justin Stone.
