For an undisclosed buyout price, FaZe Clan has signed Aleksi “allu” Jalli to their Counter-Strike: Global Offensive lineup.

The news was posted to FaZe Clan’s official Facebook page where it was also stated that Ricardo “fox” Pacheco will be removed from the roster, effective immediately, after approximately seven months of playing under the organization. No reason was given as to what led to the sudden removal of fox from the starting lineup, but FaZe confirmed that he will remain with the organization until they can come to an agreement on what to do with his contract.

Previously the AWPer and in-game leader for ENCE eSports, allu has been a proven veteran of the competitive Counter-Strike scene, having begun his career in 2010 as a part of Playzone’s CS 1.6 roster.

In a statement penned by Petri “Procyon” Hämälä, CEO of ENCE eSports, it was made clear that the transfer of allu to FaZe Clan was a decision made in allu’s best interest, and that they are grateful for the time spent together.

“We want to support our players to improve as athletes and people, provide them with career development – always looking at both sides of the coin; player and the team.

Allu has provided a lot of know-how to the team and been a valuable asset for our organization. After consideration our joint conclusion was that this is the right step for him.”

Filling in for allu will be Joona “natu” Leppänen, who is the organization’s marketing director, until ENCE eSports can find a suitable replacement.
