Club careerEdit

Youth careerEdit

Beijmo started out playing for IF Brommapojkarna at age seven, leaving his local club Ängby IF. He took part in the TV4-show called Fotbollsfabriken (The Football factory) which plotted the best 15-years old players in the academy of IF Brommapojkarna.

Djurgårdens IFEdit

On 30 March 2017, Beijmo signed a four year-deal with Allsvenskan side Djurgårdens IF. He chose Djurgården after stiff competition for his signature from Malmö FF among others.[1] On 10 May 2018, he played as Djurgården beat Malmö FF 3–0 in the Swedish Cup Final.[2]

Werder BremenEdit

In June 2018, Beijmo joined Bundesliga side Werder Bremen for the 2018–19 season having agreed a "long-term" contract. The reported fee of around €3 million made him the most expensive defender ever to leave the Swedish top flight Allsvenskan.[3][4][5]

In August 2019, he returned to Sweden having agreed a loan until the end of the season with Malmö FF.[6]

On 31 January 2020, the last day of the 2019–20 winter transfer period, Beijmo was loaned out to SpVgg Greuther Fürth until the end of the 2019–20 season.[7][8]

International careerEdit

Beijmo has represented both the Sweden national under-17 football team, Sweden national under-19 football team and Sweden national under-21 football team.[9]
