MADRID (AP) Real Madrid says it has sent teenager Martin Odegaard to Vitesse Arnhem on loan for the season.
Odegaard returns to the Dutch top division after spending 18 months on loan at Heerenveen.
The 19-year-old Norway midfielder has yet to break through at Madrid, where he moved soon after his 16th birthday as one of the most touted prospects in Europe.
Vitesse placed sixth in the Dutch league last season and is now coached by former Russia and CSKA Moscow coach Leonid Slutsky.
