Andreas Granqvist (born 16 April 1985 in Påarp) is a Swedish footballer from Helsingborg, currently playing as a defender for FC Krasnodar.[1]

Club career[edit]

Granqvist started his career with Påarps GIF, the local club of his home village Påarp. He later transferred to Helsingborgs IF and he made his debut in Allsvenskan, 2004. Two years later he was team captain, when the club won its third Swedish Cup title, beating Gefle with 2–0. The victorious HIF side also contained former Swedish internationals Henrik Larsson and Andreas Jakobsson as well as former Hibs goalkeeper Daniel Andersson.

In January 2007, he completed a loan move to Wigan Athletic with a view to a permanent deal in the summer.[2]

On 19 June 2007, Granqvist signed a two-year deal with Wigan,[3] for a fee rumoured to be around £750,000. On 12 March 2008, Granqvist returned to HIF on a loan deal until the end of the English season in June.[4]

On 9 July 2008 Granqvist signed a four-year contract with Dutch club, FC Groningen,[5] with Wigan receiving a fee of around £600,000.

On 13 September 2008, Granqvist scored after a 65-metre solo run,[6] a remarkable feat, which he again managed to accomplish in the last match of the regular season on 10 May 2009.[7]

On 15 June 2011, FC Groningen published on their website that Andreas Granqvist was sold to Genoa for a fee of 2 million euros. The Swedish international has signed a four-year contract with the Italian club.

On 16 August 2013, Granqvist moved to from Genoa to Russian Premier League side FC Krasnodar.[8]

International career[edit]

Granqvist has played for the Swedish national team, and, in May 2008, he was included in Sweden's 23-men squad for Euro 2008. However, he was an unused substitute in all three of Sweden's games.
