Heerenveen midfielder Martin Odegaard: I still want Real Madrid return

Heerenveen midfielder Martin Odegaard insists his future with Real Madrid is not over.

Odegaard, now 18, left the Spanish capital earlier this month on a temporary deal with Dutch side Heerenveen.

"People forget that I signed for Real Madrid to play in Castilla [the club's reserve side] and continue my development," said Odegaard.

“I played a lot and now I'm in the Dutch first division, so it's a step forward in my career.

"My time at Real Madrid is not over. I want to gain first-level experience at Heerenveen and then start again in the summer of 2017 at Madrid."
