Australian winger Awer Mabil has completed his move to Danish club Esbjerg on a one-season loan from FC Midtjylland.
FourFourTwo reported the move on Thursday and Esbjerg confirmed the switch for the 20-year-old on Friday afternoon.
Esbjerg, who have lost their first three Superliga matches, are hoping to get the paperwork sorted to have Mabil available for Monday's clash with Mustafa Amini's AGF.
The former Adelaide United man has struggled for first-team opportunities at Midtjylland since joining the 2014-15 Danish champions on a five-year deal in July 2015.
Esbjerg coach Colin Todd spoke highly about Mabil.
“Mabil has played for FC Midtjylland, but the competition in the team is fierce and we hope he can realise his potential and deliver at Esbjerg,” Todd told the club’s website.
“He is a right winger with speed and can make things happen. Additionally, he has a good work ethic and mentality.”
Mabil only made nine appearances in all competitions for Midtjylland last term and hasn't featured in a matchday squad since the club's opening fixture in the Europa League on July 1.
The Kenya-born talent told FourFourTwo last week he was weighing up his future and considering a loan.
“I need to keep developing and playing games is really important for me in the next one to two years,” he said.
He said his lack of game-time had left him at a crossroads.
“I have not been given any playing time to prove anything to them so I am not sure what’s going to happen,” he said.
“It is annoying but I am not letting it get into my head.
“I am training hard and doing my extras to make sure I don't get left behind.”
