Benfica sign Karadas for 4 seasons

Karadas, who has been capped by Norway at all levels, impressed the Lisbon Eagles last season during their Third Round UEFA Cup clash with Rosenborg.

The 22-year-old is a powerful striker who is also a good ball dribbler and is dangerous from free-kicks.

He has signed a four year deal and will arrive in Lisbon on Thursday.

Benfica were eager to close out this deal because they did not want Karadas to play for Rosenborg in their Champions League qualifier today against FC Sheriff. If he were to play, he would be rendered cup tied and would be unable to represent Benfica in their Third Round Champions qualifier.

Karadas has scored 3 goal for Rosenborg, who are currently topping the Norweigan Premier League, this season.

Last year he bagged 8 goals in his first season with the club, he had previously played with SK Brann of Norway where he scored 15 goals in 50 first team appearences.
