    The club's announcement, linked above, says he was recommended by Liță Dumitru, who is associated with Samnik's youth club, Kalonji Soccer Academy, and has a pretty good resume to his name.



    He is tall. That led to some internet funmaking.

    The 18-year-old American is a product of the Kalonji Soccer Academy in Georgia, from whom Politehnica have landed him on a two-year contract. But as well as being a decent young keeper, Samnik is also notable for standing at 2.07 metres tall -- that's approximately 6-foot-8, an inch taller than Peter Crouch.

    There are four Americans already in Hobro IK's 3F Super League squad, and now another is added. Thus, a three-year agreement has been made with 18-year-old American goalkeeper Jacob Samnik, who will become the fifth American in Hobro IK.
