Arsenal midfielder agrees to leave club

Kristoffer Olsson will be the first player to leave Arsenal ahead of the January transfer window, where the Gunners are expected to be fairly active regarding ins and outs from the club.

The attacking midfielder, who joined Arsenal from IFK Norrkoping in 2011, took to social media to reveal he has left the north London outfit, the 19-year-old said on his Instagram account:

“Sometimes you have to take one step back to take 2 steps forward. Now it’s official!

“I’ve signed a permanent deal with @fcmidtjylland . But first of all I wanna say thanks to @arsenal for these 3,5 years!

“I wouldn’t be the same player or person without them! Everyone at the club has been helping me from day one, and I’ve made friendships that I hope will last forever!

“And thank you to all of you fans and supporters, I love you.”

Olsson scored in a pre-season friendly earlier this summer for Arsenal but leaves the club without breaking into Arsene Wenger’s first-team squad.
