"We are extremely pleased that Kasper has chosen Ribe-Esbjerg HH, and we are looking forward to welcoming him. He is a very reliable left wing who has proven his worth in the world's best league the Bundesliga, where he has a remarkable high score," says Sune Agerschou, chairman of the elite committee in Ribe-Esbjerg HH. "He will be an important piece of our team in the coming seasons - there is no doubt at all".
Kasper Kvist says: "I am very excited to contribute to the Ribe-Esbjerg HH project - it is a club with a high level of ambition, which fits well with my own expectations.
