'They Call Him The Crazy One'

by Adam Clark @efc_adamclark

Earlier this week, Jes Mortensen from Denmark's TV2 told why he feels the Blues pulled off a deadline-day coup in prising left-sided Costa Rican Bryan Oviedo from FC Copenhagen.

Today, Gisle Thorsen of Ekstra Bladet, Denmark's best-selling daily newspaper, gives us his expert insight into the newly-signed 22-year-old, his playing style and his nickname 'El Loco' (The Crazy One).

Thorsen also reveals which other clubs were vying for Bryan's signature and explains why he agrees with Mortensen that David Moyes has made another shrewd addition to his squad.

To hear what Gisle Thorsen had to say, listen to his interview via the audio player below.
