Erik Tonne returns to Norway

Erik Tonne leaves Sheffield United to sign for Sandnes Ulf in his native Norway.

Erik Tonne has left Sheffield United and returned to his native Norway with Sandnes Ulf.

The 22-year-old winger has struggled to hold down a first-team place at Bramall Lane, and was loaned out to York City in 2012.

He also completed a loan stint with Norwegian side HamKam earlier this year, before being recalled by the Blades.

"We are very pleased to have concluded the transfer and feel it is a good solution for us," club director Tom Rune Espedal told Stavanger Aftenblad.

"Players get a good education in England, but it is also positive that he has got experience from the first division in Norway and is ready to fight for a place in our side."

Tonne has signed a two-year contract with Sandnes Ulf.
