A speedy Swedish striker, Andreas' spell on Tyneside was beset by injuries following his £3 million move from AC Milan.

He began his career at Tidaholm in 1994 and he soon moved to Degefors. He made his big move when he signed for IFK Gothenburg in 1996. He quickly earned his international debut in February 1996 against Australia where he scored twice. He made the 1996 World Cup squad and after one more season in Sweden he moved to play in Italy for AC Milan but he could not settle and moved to Newcastle United in January 1998 for £ 3 million. His career there was beset by injury and he moved back to Sweden when he signed for AIK Solna in the summer of 1999. He played himself into contention for a place in the 2000 European Championship Finals but missed out with injury. He is a pacy striker but is unlikely to start in front of the established pair of Marcus Allback and Henrik Larsson.
