SUNDERLAND flop David Moberg Karlsson has returned to Scandinavia after joining Danish side FC Nordsjaelland.

The Swedish winger was brought to the Stadium of Light in a £1.5million deal last summer by ex-director of football Roberto De Fanti.

But he made just one appearance for Sunderland - under Paolo Di Canio in the League Cup second round - before being sent on loan to Scottish side Kilmarnock in January, where he started only twice.

Sunderland have been looking to offload Moberg Karlsson this summer and he was not included in the Black Cats’ pre-season trip to Portugal.

Their efforts have paid off with Nordsjaelland today announcing that the 20-year-old has penned a four-year deal at the club after joining for an undisclosed fee.

Moberg Karlsson said: “I have no doubt that this is the right move for me and I am really looking forward to getting started and meeting my new team-mates.

“I’ve heard lots of good things about the club, which is strong at developing young players and it’s important to me.

“Everything should be about getting better in the team and developing the players to perform at the highest level and that is exactly what I want.”

Sunderland will now hope to offload the other players considered surplus to requirements at the Stadium of Light - Cabral, Modibo Diakite and Danny Graham.
