According to both reports, the deal is done but just needs to be finalized by the league front office. I would imagine he will be announced sometime early this week by the club.
The 32-year-old has floated around to a few clubs from Crystal Palace in England to German side FC Kaiserslautern. His most recent spell was with Swedish side Djurgårdens IF.
Riihilahti has been a regular for the Finland national side since the late 90s. He’s appeared in 69 games for the Finnish side and has scored 11 goals.
He also is a bit of a writer too, he has columns in a Finnish newspaper called Iltalehti.
Like the signing? I know he isn’t a name that most know of but he could just be what San Jose needs to finish filling out their defensive section of the midfield.
