Ulvestad Heads To Sweden

Midfielder ends Turf Moor stay to join top flight club on three-year deal

2 February 2018

Freddie Ulvestad has ended his stay at Turf Moor to join Swedish top-flight side Djurgarden.

The midfielder has secured a permanent deal and signed a three-year contract with the Stockholm-based club, which starts its domestic league season at the beginning of April.

Ulvestad had been with Burnley since March, 2015 after signing from Norwegian side Aalesund.

The 25-year-old went on to make 10 senior appearances for the Clarets, including five in the Championship as Sean Dyche’s side won the 2015/16 title.

Ulvestad then spent last season on loan with Charlton Athletic and signed off his Burnley career as an unused substitute in Wednesday night’s 1-1 draw at Newcastle United.

Djurgaardens finished third in Sweden’s top division last season, to secure European qualification, and are 11-times former domestic champions, their last Allsvenskan title coming in 2005 when they completed a league and cup double.

They will play in the Europa League next season, meaning a return to the competition for Ulvestad, who played in the qualifying rounds during his time in Norway.

The club is currently in pre-season training before the Swedish Cup competition kicks off later this month.

Everyone at Turf Moor would like to thank Freddie for all his efforts and wish him well in his future career.
