Andreas, was born in Paarp, Sweden on 16th April 1985 and was signed by Paul Jewell from Helsingborgs IF on 27th December 2006, initially on a six months long loan deal. Jewell beat Liverpool and Bayern Munich to his signature and the 6ft 3 ins central defender made his Latics debut in a third round FA Cup game against Portsmouth at Fratton Park on 6th January 2007. Sadly the game resulted in a 1-2 defeat. He never played a Premiership game that season for the Blues and returned to home to Sweden at the end of the campaign.
However, new manager Chris Hutchings did sign him on a two-year deal from Helsingborgs IF on 19th June 2007 for a fee of £750.000. He eventually made his Premiership debut on the opening day of the 2007/08 season, 11th August 2007, against Everton at Goodison Park, a game that Latics lost 2-1.
After making just 16+1 Premiership appearances for the club he was loaned back to Helsingborgs IF in January 2008 until the end of season 2007/08. He left the club on Wednesday 9th July 2008 when he signed a four year deal with Groningen for which the Blues received £600,000.
He currently plies his trade with Genoa, signing for the Italian outfit for a fee of £1.850.000 in June 2011 and he is hoping to receive his 21st international cap against England on Friday.
