Footballer Ats Purje has signed an end-of-season contract with the Finnish Premier League club KuPS, the second Estonian to do so in recent days.

Midfielder Sander Puri was picked up by the Kuopio-based club on March 26.

Speaking to sport.err.ee, Purje said he was quite happy with the deal, especially since he would be joining Puri.

“It's a big plus that we're playing together. With another Estonian [on the team] it's always easier. We were already good friends,” he said.

The 26-year-old Purje, who plays right winger or second striker, is no stranger to the Finnish league - he had played for FC Inter Turku from 2008 to 2009.

Purje had been shopping for a club since leaving Achna Ethnikos in December. Though he tested with Romanian club Pandurii Targu Jiu in February, the two sides couldn't come to an agreement on compensation.
