York City boss captures Estonia winger Sander Puri

York Press: Sander Puri Sander Puri

ESTONIAN international winger Sander Puri has agreed to join York City in a two-year deal.

Puri, who is due to gain a 50th cap for his country in Monday’s friendly against Belarus, has become Nigel Worthington’s fourth summer signing following the arrivals of Ryan Jarvis, Craig Clay and Ryan Bowman.

The move is still subject to a successful medical when the 25-year-old attacker returns from international duty following further matches against Trinidad & Tobago and Krgystan.

City boss Nigel Worthington first encountered Puri when he was Northern Ireland manager and Estonia were in the same Euro 2012 qualifying group.

Estonia beat Worthington’s team 4-1 and 2-1 during that competition and the Minstermen chief also received a glowing reference on his new signing from former Northern Ireland team-mate Jimmy Nicholl, who is now in charge of Kilmarnock.

Nicholl took on Puri as a trialist last season before he went on to join fellow Scottish Premier League outfit St Mirren in March, making two appearances for the Paisley side.

Having started his career in Estonia, where he was named Young Footballer of the Year in 2009, Puri has also plied his trade in Greece, Poland and Hungary and has scored goals against Lithuania and Armenia for his country.

According to internet sources, he was also linked with Champions League finalists Borussia Dortmund and Celtic as a younger player and is currently a key member of the Estonia team that is fifth behind Holland, Hungary, Romania and Turkey in a tough qualifying group for the 2014 World Cup finals.On his latest signing, Worthington said: “He’s a wide player who can play on the right or left. I remember him playing against us when I was with Northern Ireland and, being in the same group, we obviously watched Estonia several times and I’ve looked back at my reports from then.

“He’s 5ft 9in and, when I was talking about our need for tall players not preventing us from signing a good, small one, he falls into that category. He had a trial period at Kilmarnock last season and I have spoken to Jimmy Nicholl about him.

“Jimmy said he was excellent and could not fault him on anything so I asked him why he didn’t sign him and he said that they had a young lad coming through the system who was a similar player and they did not want to block his progress so Sander went to St Mirren instead.”

• Chesterfield have made Hibernian’s Scottish FA Cup final striker Eoin Doyle their first summer signing.

Morecambe forward Jordan Burrow has moved to Stevenage, while Millwall ’keeper Steve Mildenhall has joined Bristol Rovers on a permanent basis following his successful loan spell with the Pirates last season.

Looks good, had a quick look on youtube at some of his games and he seems to be able to put a good cross in. 4 good signings so far hopefully.

Seems to be yet another good example of the benefit of having such a high profile manager in NW who is clearly using all his extensive range of contacts to secure the right level of quality to take us forward.

Not sure what our playing budget is for this year but it does seem the Board are really supporting NW is trying to bring success to the club so well done again to them. Much better to sign quality rather than quantity.

Hopefully this type of signing also demonstrates that NW will also want to play quality football with skillfull players but in the right areas of the pitch which is what the majority of sensible fans have been wanting.

Good buisness by club we have little scope for transfer fees so his signiature is most welcome & it will reassure those who think we might become a hopfball team. Blair replaced need a left back, striker, midfielder that can hold up dictate play & a CB possibly if Dan P is utilised differently, some way to go yet but promising.

Looks good. Proof, as ever, will be in the proverbial pudding but I'm happier with this type of signing than ex-Icelandic Premier League "stars"

One thing I do agree with previous posters though (and I include Billy aka Y41 in this) is to balance all this out with a local conveyor belt of upcoming talent and field a reserve side (which I thought we got funding for as a league
club)

York based Town fan. Seems like another good signing for you. After Ryan Bowman and others. If Dortmund were said to be looking at him, he must be at least half decent.

Saw that you a more physical presence in the team. Sensible. Thinking of Walker and others as being too lightweight.

Grimsby have signed Scott Kerr today on a 1 year contract. This has gone down well despite his injuries and age. We are weak in this area. At least he won't be scoring any more late headed winners against us!

You should do well next season. Newport got into the League after nearly be relegated the season before.

It's very difficult to argue against the signing of a current full international player with nearly 50 caps behind him. Given he is only 25 and still playing for his country I have no idea why he is dropping down to league two which should be well below his natural level. It looks like Nigel has pulled off something if a coup here but I'm still slightly baffled as to how he has done it.

I must admit Duffy I thought this was the "coup" you referred to a week or so ago. Notwithstanding the fact we ain't seen the guy in the rigours of L2 yet, I'm just thankful that we have NW at the helm, and that - so far - the evidence I've seen from the very end of last season and through the first month of the close season suggests we are definitely on the right track.

Well to be fair neither Henderson or Ashikodi came with glowing reports from the fans of their clubs, Ashikodi in particular was not liked by Tamworth fans because of his attitude. This guy is on a different level to those two with respect to his career. Deserves a bit of excitement just because we don't have players like him joining us that often but as you say we wait and see if he is the real deal or a huge flop.

I agree O-H (and Uhtred) and I'll give him more than 5 minutes before I rush to judge either way.

Although he's travelled widely for his profession it can still take some time to settle in. At least York is a similar size to his home town but one start at St.Mirren since signing in March hardly gives him a good indication of what to expect in our league.
His international caps look impressive but Estonia with a population of less than one and a half million and a FIFA ranking below Uganda and Armenia (and 20 below Iceland) should not lead us to expect miracles. Let's not fall into the trap of slagging the guy off if he doesn't immediately turn out to be a hidden Messi.
On the subject of contracts we seem to be getting back to the old approach of giving players some stability of tenure which must mean that the worry of providing for the family does not take away their City focus.
Of course the flip side is that you're stuck if they don't pass muster but it seems that Nigel is doing his homework..

The Legend Of Keith says...

A very promising signing and only time will tell if it is a coup or not. Looks like Sander has all the skill in the world but it is up to NW to get him to show it on the football pitch.

These are very interesting times indeed for York. The signings so far are all about creating a squad suitable for this level but there is a slowly growing undercurrent hinting that things are all moving in the right direction without any fuss or fanfare.

There are still some areas of the pitch that need covering and developing so I expect some more signings in due course.

The odds for York to win the league are very long, but this is to be expected. The contrast from this pre-season to last would give me great cause to check the odds for York achieving a top half or play off finish. Either of these would represent a huge step forwards.

Just watched Sander on You Tube, playing for his national side and local Estonian club. Looks a very lively and talented right-winger, who can shoot with either foot and head a ball too and overall, has bags of pace! He looked outstanding in the selected, published clips during the international with Brazil(had Ricki Kaka chasing after him!!) and we seem to have signed a good one here! There will be 2014 World Cup qualifiers in September/October, so we might lose him to the national side in the early season but hey, what the heck!! Looking at the stadiums and backdrop to the league games in Estonia, they don't appear anywhere near as good as most grounds/crowds/atmos
phere in League 2, so maybe a step-up for him?!! Anyhow, good luck Sander, hope you enjoy your time in England and look forward to seeing you playing in a City shirt and that we have a successful 2013/14 campaign. COYR.

I saw the last 40 minutes of Estonias game last night on the site Some old Bloke quoted.it wasn't in English so I just watched is (turned sound off) they lost 2-0 the second was scored late on after their central defender was sent off.Puri was out on the right he kept having to come inside looking for balls most of the action was down the left,he played well all action ,good passer of the ball,and was always making space for himself,
I would say the standard was league 2 plus, Bit like England on a bad day.
some of it on a good day.Estonia wont win the world cup,nor will England,so that makes ESTONIA and ENGLAND equal.if it was racehorses each 50/1

Not hugely relevant but just a point about shoddy journalism. Jimmy Nicholl is not in charge at kilmarnock. He is assistant manager to Kenny Shiels.
