Liberia's Jimmy Dixon has joined Swedish premiership club Malmo FF but his compatriot Dulee Johnson is frustrated in a move away from AIK Solna.

Dixon joins Malmo on a three year contract from another Swedish club BK Hacken, who have recently been relegated.

"This is a dream realized. Malmo is a club with a promising future that I want to be a part of," the 25-year-old central defender said.

Malmo will be hoping that Dixon can bring some much needed stability to their defence that conceded 39 goals in 26 league matches last season and saw them finish 7th in the table.

Malmo director, Hasse Borg, is happy with the deal: "This is a player we have wanted for a long time. We are happy to have completed the deal."

Meanwhile, Dixon's compatriot, midfielder Dulee Johnson is still being frustrated in his desire to leave his Swedish club, AIK Solna.

Solna are attempting to extend Johnson's contract without his consent.

Earlier this year, the Liberian international joined AIK on a one year deal with an option to extend for a further two seasons.

The club maintain that they do not need Dulee's consent to extend the contract, a position which the player has rejected.

According to the Swedish media such one-sided contracts are illegal.
