North have signed Philip "aizy" Aistrup, the organization announced on Wednesday.

aizy last played for FaZe Clan, but left that organization on Tuesday, following reports that he would depart FaZe to replace Ruben "RUBINO" Villarroel on North.

"Aizy is a great talent, a founding member of the original FaZe CS:GO lineup, and was hard to let go of," said FaZe in a news release.

"However, we saw an opportunity to fully complete our roster and to let Aizy move on with his career in familiar settings in Denmark. All aspects were considered in this decision, including our team’s current composition & recent success, and availability of possible replacements. North has been a pleasure to work with and we wish both Aizy, as well as North the best of luck going forward."

While with FaZe, aizy helped the team place 3rd-4th at ELEAGUE Season 2, 5th-6th at the ECS Season 2 Finals and 5th-8th at the ELEAGUE Major. Prior to his time with FaZe he played for G2 Esports and Team Dignitas.
