Before the most important matches of the season FK Žalgiris Vilnius decided to strengthen its squad with a talented attacking midfielder Tautvydas Eliošius.

The 23 year old is a candidate of Lithuanian national team and played many games for Lithuanian under 19 and under 21 youth teams, also he won a silver medal in last years’ Lithuanian A league championship.

“We have spotted this player two years ago and we were planning to add him to our squad in January. But the things turned out that he is at our team right now. I think it is good as he will have more time to adapt to his new team and other players.

Tautvydas has a good chance to prove his worth and to help us win the league title in this years’ championship.

We don’t think there is a lot of good Lithuanian players, so we hope Tautvydas will be a good addition to our team and he will help us to fight for a place in UEFA Champions’ league group stage. He has a lot of potential and we will try to make him even a better player”, - clubs’ sporting director Mindaugas Nikoličius said.
