Jonas Lennart Portin (born 30 September 1986) is a Finnish former footballer who played as a defender.[1] Portin had represented Ascoli and Padova of Serie B, the second-tier league of football in Italy.[2][3]

Club career[edit]

Jaro[edit]

Portin started his senior career in Veikkausliiga team FF Jaro.[4] He made his debut at the senior level in 2005 with FF Jaro.[5] In 2006 he became a regular player in Jaro´s starting eleven.

Ascoli[edit]

In 2009 he transferred to Serie B club Ascoli.[6][7][8]

Padova[edit]

On 31 August 2010 he was transferred from Ascoli to Padova[6] for €900,000 in co-ownership deal in 3-year contract.[9][10] Co-currently Ascoli signed Vasco Faísca for free.[10][11] and Marc Lewandowski in temporary deal.[12]

In August 2011 Padova acquired Portin outright for €450,000;[13] Gianluca Giovannini also moved to Ascoli for free.[13][14]

Parma and retirement[edit]

In June 2012, days before the closing of the financial year of Parma on 30 June (Padova ended the financial year on 31 December), Parma signed Portin in co-ownership deal for a nominal account value of €2 million,[15][16] in 3-year contract; co-currently Padova signed Niccolò Galli also in co-ownership deal for €2 million,[15][16] thus a pure player exchange deal. The deal boosted both club financially as well as benefit in the field.[nb 1]

Portin immediately returned to Padova in temporary deal. However Portin was forced to retire from playing football on 3 August 2012 following the discovery of a rare heart defect which could have been lifethreatening if he continued to play.[18][19][20] Portin´s team honoured him on 25 August 2012 by displaying his shirt after a goal against Lanciano.[21]

Parma write-down the accounting value of Portin backdated to 2011–12 financial year, not fully but from €4 million to €2.667 million.[16] Despite Portin was retired, along with Galli, the two co-ownership deals were renewed technically on 20 June 2013.[22] On 30 June 2013 Portin finally released by Parma, which the club had to write down €1,777,778 on 30 June 2013 as well as bore an amortization cost of €888,889 in 2012–13 financial year. However it also counter-weight by the financial income of €2 million as Parma did not have to pay for the remain 50% registration rights.[23] However, it was yet another financial trick as Parma suffered a €2 million loss in 2013–14, as Padova never able to buy Galli outright for another €2 million cash.

International career[edit]

Portin was also a member of Finland national under-21 football team.[24][25]

Personal life[edit]

His older brother Jens is also a professional footballer, currently representing Gefle IF[26][27] in Sweden.
