Aerial joined HAVU
HAVU announced on their official website the transfer of Yani "Aerial" Jussila from ENCE. This confirmed earlier information from insider Jarek "DeKay" Lewis.
"First of all I would like to thank ENCE and my former teammates there for the past two years. But now it's time to focus on a new chapter with HAVU, I couldn't be more excited about starting practicing again in January!”
-Jani “Aerial Jussila, Player at HAVU
"Last piece of the puzzle has been announced! I’m super thrilled to start working with Jani and the rest of this crew for 2021. This lineup has enormous potential to succeed and take Finnish CS back on the map of Counter-Strike."
-Taneli Veikkola, Head Coach at HAVU
"A big thank you to Jani for his contributions at ENCE over the past two years. We wish you nothing but the best in your next challenge at HAVU. We would like to also thank HAVU for their continued cooperation in these recent negotiations"
-Niklas Ojalainen, GM at ENCE
The Finnish clubs have not named a buyout amount for the 27-year-old eSports athlete. HAVU and ENCE reportedly agreed on a possible Aerial's transfer back in November, when the transfers of Junas "doto" Fross and Eetu "sAw" Saha were finalized.
It also became known that the deal includes a clause stating that HAVU is no longer obligated to loan out Sami "xseveN" Laasanen, who was used as a replacement for Elias "Jamppi" Olkkonen during RMR tournaments, to ENCE.
As a reminder, Aerial has played for ENCE for the past two years and helped the team win StarSeries S6, DreamHack Open Winter 2018, Europe Minor - Katowice 2019 and BLAST Pro Series Madrid 2019 as well as reach the finals of the IEM Katowice 2019 majors. He is currently inactive for medical reasons and will not begin training with his new team until he is fully recovered.
