Matthews, who was snapped up by Borussia Dortmund in 2018, has had a couple of loan spells away from the German giants, and he'll be hoping to make his spell in Sweden count as he looks to make a name for himself at a senior level.

Head coach, Joakim Persson, has spoken of his happiness in bringing the 19-year-old on board for thew new season, saying their hoping that a lot will come from the South African youth international.

Speaking to the club's official website, Persson said, "He has an extremely high maximum level... Tashreeq is young, so we will see how he can keep that level for a whole season. There is a lot to bring in a new team, and not least a new city.

"The whole team has a low middle age, so we hope that it will be good for him with many players of the same age around him, and that he will quickly get into the gang. But he has a lot of potential, so it will be very exciting and see what we can get out of him."

Matthews will be itching to get out on the field for his new team as they start life in the Allsvenskan in 2020, but his debut could come next month in the Swedish cup when competitive football in Sweden gets underway once again.
