Exeter City have signed Swedish-born defender Doug Bergqvist following his departure from Aldershot Town.
The 20-year-old centre-half moved to England from Stockholm at the age of 10 and came through the academy systems at Reading and Queens Park Rangers.
Chief executive Julian Tagg said: "We're delighted to have had the opportunity to bring in a young prospect of Doug's calibre.
"He knows what the game is about at a competitive level."
Tagg continued: "He is someone that we've looked at the possibility of signing before and we're very pleased that we have had the opportunity to add him to our ranks."
