Hammarby Sports Director Johan Lager is happy to have Kellond-Knight at the club over the spring.

"She is a player who holds the highest international class, and has a solid track record and a high level of experience," he said.

"We are convinced that Elise will bring a lot to our squad, although she will not play this anymore until July," he added.

Kellond-Knight left Turbine Potsdam earlier this year when she decided not to renew her contract.

She tried to sign to Seattle Reign in the NWSL before confusion struck and it turned out that she was on the discovery list for North Carolina Courage without her knowledge.

Kellond-Knight said she was looking forward to playing in the Damallsvenskan, Sweden's top division of women's football.

"Sweden has always been a good rival to Australia in a national team, so this will be a special experience for me," she said.

"Of course, it's especially fun to connect to Hammarby and I hope I will contribute a good way to the team. 

"Stockholm is a beautiful city and it feels good to come here after a couple of turbulent months in terms of my contractual situation. 

"I have had the privilege of playing in many countries during my career and it has given me experiences I hope to benefit Hammarby," said Kellond-Knight.

Elise Kellond-Knight missed the teams first two matches due to her Matildas commitments at the recent Asian Cup.
