Bohemian FC is delighted to confirm the signing of Estonian international striker Sten Reinkort.

The 25-year-old joins from Flora Tallin on a multi-year contract, and is the third addition to the squad ahead of the 2024 season following the arrivals of Dayle Rooney and Rob Cornwall.

Welcoming Reinkort to the club, manager Declan Devine said: “Sten came in this morning after travelling yesterday from Estonia. Obviously we lost two strikers this window, so it was important that we get at least one.

“Sten ticks all the boxes for us. He is a full international for Estonia. He has played in a lot of high profile games. I have watched his Champions League performances for Flora Tallin and he is a huge presence.

“He is a huge lad with great mobility. He holds the ball up well and in 2022 was voted the best striker in the Estonian Premier Division. He has a really good pedigree, and room to grow and improve.

“We are looking forward to working with Sten. He trained very well this morning, and he has a lot of attributes that will help us as a team moving forward, so I am delighted to have him on board, and there will be another centre forward or two added to the squad in the coming weeks.

“We have 15 or 16 players tied down for this season, and quite a few for next season. We have brought players to the club who we have really wanted, and we have a lot of attack-minded players at the club.

“But we are fully aware that there are positions where we need to strengthen. We won’t dive in and just fill those positions, we have to make sure that the players we bring in are of the quality that will help us achieve our goals this season.

“Dayle and Rob have been really outstanding over the course of the first week and a half of pre-season.

“Rob brings incredible leadership, a knowledge of how to defend, and knows the league and the club. He has been a brilliant addition and has fitted really well back into the club.

“Dayle gives us a natural left-footer, which is something we haven’t had in the last 12 months. He has really taken to the group and the group has taken to him.

“We have five to six weeks before the season starts, and we have to make sure the personnel coming in are going to make us stronger. The recruitment side of the club is working really hard to make sure the people we bring in make us better. I am confident that when the first game of the season comes, we will have a very competitive squad.”

Reinkort said: “It is very exciting to be a part of this big club, and I am looking forward to the challenge.

“Last year I got a lot of international experience that I can bring here, and a lot of European game experience too.”
