Arsenal confirm that Kristoffer Olsson has left the club permanently

Kristoffer Olsson has left Arsenal for FC Midtjylland on a permanent basis.

Arsenal have confirmed that attacking midfielder Kristoffer Olsson has completed a permanent move to FC Midtjylland, having previously been there on loan.

The news was confirmed on Arsenal's official Twitter account on Tuesday morning, with the 19-year-old leaving the North London club having previously been a shining light in their under-19 side.

The young Swede leaves the Emirates Stadium having appeared just once for the first-team, in a League Cup match against West Bromwich Albion, and it will be interesting to see how his career develops in the future.

Since initially moving to Midtjylland on loan in the summer, Olsson has made eight appearances for the club, providing two assists in that time.

The teenager will now be hoping to kick on and prove he can be a very effective player in the years ahead, having ended his time in London sooner than many expected.
