CARSON, Calif. (AP) — Swedish midfielder Stefan Ishikazi has signed with the Los Angeles Galaxy.

The MLS club announced the deal Thursday with Ishikazi, who spent the last eight seasons with Elfsborg in Sweden’s first division.

The 31-year-old Ishikazi won two championships with Elfsborg, scoring 48 goals in 183 league games. He also played extensively for the club in UEFA competitions.

Ishikazi also has played 13 games for Sweden, most recently in January 2012.

Los Angeles coach Bruce Arena says the Galaxy welcome Ishikazi’s passing abilities and extensive experience. Ishikazi will have a key playmaking role on the right side setting up Landon Donovan and Robbie Keane.

Ishikazi is another addition to the Galaxy’s attack along with two fellow newcomers: Canadian forward Rob Friend and Brazilian striker Samuel.
