Norwegian midfielder Sondre Tronstad has left Huddersfield Town by mutual consent.

The 20-year-old, who would have been out of contract this summer, becomes a free agent and is expected to return to his home country.

Tronstad was signed from IK Start two years ago.

He has made 45 starts and 11 substitute appearances for Town’s Under 21 side, scoring four goals.

Tronstad was also an unused substitute for the Championship game at Hull City on the opening day of this season.

Town’s senior professional development coach Frankie Bunn said: “Sondre’s contract was due to expire at the end of the season.

“We had informed him that the club wasn’t planning to take up the 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.”
