"It's really fun that the club believes in me and I look forward to wearing Sävehof's logo on my chest for three years. Getting to a big club like Sävehof from Nödinge SK was a big step, especially with the training. But during my youth and a half season in the first team, I've developed a lot of myself as an individual and a handball player. I'm still young and it's very fun to be able to develop myself as a handball player even more with Johan Jakobsson as mentor and colleague. So far, I have made a trip that's just the beginning, now I look forward to several wonderful seasons in a club where I feel well and will do anything to get home gold to Partille again," Gzim says.

"Gzim has made a strong start to the season and proved he wants to help IK Sävehof with new successes. A new 3-year contract with Gzim feels great. We believe in Gzim and look forward to this trip," says Anders Eliasson.
