The move comes after Browne has featured, and scored, in a friendly and two Finnish Cup games.

“For me Helsinki is a great city and HJK is a great club with so much history,” Browne said in a video on HJK’s website.

The Finnish giants have won the top flight, the Veikkausliiga, a whopping 29 times, but finished as far down as fifth last season.

After some time in New Zealand playing for Auckland City, the 24-year-old is looking to make a big difference at his new side. He will hope for more success than his last stint in Europe, where he didn’t feature much at Dutch team Groningen.
