The amazing Jonathan Lindseth has announced his move from Sarpsborg 08 to Bulgarian football.
Clubs confirm this on Monday evening.
– The feeling is very good. They really wanted me. I’ve been wanted for so long. It’s fun, so I hope it’s in Europe now. It’s something she’s dreamed of for a long time, Lindseth tells VG.

According to VG information, Sarpsborg will receive between 5-7 million NOK for the midfielder. Sarpsborg 08 sporting director Thomas Berntsen does not want to comment on the transfer fee to VG.
“There were long negotiations, but in the end we got to a point where the transfer as a player suited us as a club and Jonathan as a player,” says Berntsen in the press release.
Lindseth’s contract with the Norwegian club expires at the end of the year. The 26-year-old has played 100 matches for Sarpsborg. This season, he played 13 league matches and scored two goals.
Only when she was 23 years old did Lindseth have the opportunity at the top level.
– I’ve never had a chance in Odd and haven’t played at Eliteserien before going to Sarpsborg 08 in 2019. It wasn’t written in stone that I was going to make my adventure abroad, but now I’m here.
He travels to Bulgaria on Monday a week later. The air strike made it difficult to visit the country in advance, but he says Agent Jack Karadas was shot down and he checked the conditions.
Lindseth’s last home game will be against Lillestrøm this weekend.
Of course it would be strange. It’s always sad to leave the place. He says maybe it gives a little extra energy to end up on a good note.
The capital club has 31 league championships and is the most winning club in the country throughout history. They finished last season in second place behind Ludogorets.
CSKA Sofia also played in the Conference League last season, being in a group with Bodo/Glimt. The Bulgarians came last in the group with one point.
