Sebastian Svard signs for Wycombe Wanderers

Wycombe Wanderers have signed former Arsenal midfielder Sebastian Svard on a one-month deal.

The 30-year-old most recently played for Danish side Silkeborg IF and Sweden's Syrianska since recovering from a career-threatening virus.

He played three senior games for the Gunners between 2000 and 2006 and 14 during a loan spell at Stoke.

"It's great to be here and I'm happy to have signed a short-term deal," the Dane told the Wycombe website. 

"I've been out for a long time with a virus, but I'm back and healthy."

"I'm ready to play games, my match fitness is not 100%, but that's improving. Training is good and tough and once I get my chance I will be alright."

Svard started his career in FC Copenhagen's development team, before joining Arsenal and going on to represent Portuguese outfit Vitoria de Guimaraes and German side Borussia Monchengladbach.

Chairboys boss Gareth Ainsworth added: "It's a short-term contract, but Sebastian wanted to come and get himself back into the game after a bit of a lay-off with a condition."

The deal is subject to international clearance.
