Real Madrid youngster Martin Odegaard will be back in the Dutch league this season after reportedly agreeing a loan deal with Vitesse Arnhem.
According to Marca, Dutch media are reporting that the deal has been finalised, giving the 19-year-old a return to the Netherlands after he spent last season at Heerenveen.
The moves to the Eredivisie offers Odegaard regular playing time in a league that suits his style of play.
Last season, Odegaard made 43 appearances for Heerenveen, scoring four goals, and Madrid will hope that another loan spell will help bring along his development even further.
The Norwegian has made only one appearance for Los Blancos’ senior team, though he became a regular for Real Madrid Castilla before the club decided loan moves would be better for the much-hyped youngster.
Ajax, Real Madrid and AC Milan icon Clarence Seedorf has been discussing his first Cameroon squad.
Seedorf, 42, signed a four-year deal with the Indomitable Lions earlier this month.
A 22-man roster was selected by him and assistant manager Patrick Kluivert for September 7’s match against Comoros.

Vinicius Junior didn’t feature in either the European Super Cup or Real Madrid‘s first La Liga game of the season, with Julen Lopetegui opting to bring the young Brazilian along gradually, according to Marca.
The new Madrid manager, who is reportedly hoping for one more attacking signing before the transfer window closes, was impressed by Vinicius’ performance during pre-season, as were many senior figures at the club.
However, the 18-year-old, who is being viewed as potentially a Neymar-level talent, still represents a risk for Lopetegui at this stage, and the manager reportedly does not believe Vinicius is ready for a first-team promotion just yet.
Lopetegui may also prefer to give the youngster more chances after Madrid have a few wins under their belt, following the 2-0 victory over Getafe in their league opener, so that Vinicius is not placed under too much pressure too quickly.
With Florentino Perez a known admirer of the youngster – he sanctioned a €45million move for a player who hadn’t even broken into Flamengo’s first team when the deal was agreed last year ahead of this summer’s move – it won’t be long before Vinicius gets his chance.
