SONDRE TRONSTAD has signed for Huddersfield Town after the club agreed a compensation fee with IK Start.

The 18-year-old Norwegian Youth International has penned a deal until the summer of 2016; with the club having the option of a further year.

Town boss Mark Robins told the clubs Official site:-

‘As part of our scouting activity in Scandinavia we watched Sondre on a number of occasions for IK Start as well as on international duty with Norway before we invited him to spend a week with us in late November 2013 after his season and contract ended.

‘He impressed me and our staff during that training period. He has great technical ability and a superb passing range.

‘He’s a central midfielder and is able to play as a deep-lying player or as a more advanced ‘number 10’.

‘Sondre is only 18 and we believe can develop further with us. He has a real desire to learn and do well, so we’re excited about working with him over the coming weeks and months.

‘We are building a group of young players, through a balance of careful acquisition and developing our academy, which is getting stronger, with lots of potential and incorporating types that fit the long-term philosophy of the club.’


Tronstad has taken the number 32 shirt at the club.

It really is quite an exciting signing for the club and again forward vision being shown and faith in a manager to develop quality young players.

I for one am certainly looking forward to seeing the Norwegian break into this exciting young team!
