Norwegian midfielder leaves ‘The Yorkshire Club’

- Sondre Tronstad leaves Huddersfield Town
- Norwegian midfielder spent two seasons at the Club
- Comments from SPD Coach Frankie Bunn

Midfielder Sondre Tronstad has today departed Huddersfield Town after his contract was terminated by mutual consent.

Since the cancellation has occurred during the January transfer window, this move will allow Sondre to find a new club for the remainder of the 2015/16 season.

Now 20 years old, Sondre initially joined Huddersfield Town in January 2014 from Norwegian side IK Start.

Over the course of the last two years, Sondre has made 45 starts and 11 substitute appearances for Town’s Under-21 side, scoring four goals, as the Development Squad topped the Professional Development League 2 North twice and reached the national league final last season.

Sondre also appeared in the First Team’s match day 18 once; he was an unused substitute for the Sky Bet Championship game at Hull City on the opening day of the current campaign.

His contact at the Club was due to run until the end of the 2015/16 season. 

Huddersfield Town’s Senior Professional Development Coach Frankie Bunn commented:

“Sondre’s contract was due to expire at the end of the season and we had informed him that the Club wasn’t planning to take up its option of a year’s extension, so this is a chance for a clean break for him.

“He has worked hard throughout his two years at the Club, but we have other talented players in the Under-21 Squad in the central midfield area as well as a number pushing to make the step up from the Under-18 side. We need to give those players opportunities and time on the pitch for their development, so this move suits everyone.

“On behalf of all the staff and players at the Club, I’d like to wish Sondre the best of luck for the future.”
