Former Bradford City loanee Blair Turgott is set to join Swedish side Ostersunds FKare, the midfielder spent time at Valley Parade as part of Phil Parkinson 2012 promotion winning side. Turgott played in the team that beat Arsenal and Aston Villa to reach the 2012 Capital One Cup Final against Swansea City and the Sky Bet League Two Play-Off Final against Northampton Town at Wembley Stadium.
Turgott, started his career at West Ham United before having loan spells at Bradford City, Colchester United, Rotherham United & Dagenham & Redbridge but the former England International left West Ham United to join Coventry City in 2015 without making an appearance for the Hammers.

Ostersund have embarked on a policy of bringing young English talent to the far north of Sweden since the appointment of ex-Tottenham talent-spotter David Webb.
