Martin Odegaard was loaned to Eredivisie club Heerenveen by Real Madrid in January with the idea of gaining the top-flight experience that the Norwegian midfielder was finding hard to come by under Zinedine Zidane. However, Madrid’s hopes that Odegaard would rediscover the form that brought him to the Bernabéu from Stromsgodset in the first place have yet to be realized.
Since his arrival in the Eredivisie, Odegaard has featured for 346 minutes over seven appearances and has only managed one shot on goal in that time. He has also provided just one assist so far, for Doke Schmidt last month in a 3-0 victory over Roda.
With Odegaard in the side, Heerenveen have only won twice in seven games, drawing once and losing four times.
Heerenveen are currently sixth in the Eredivisie with 36 points, 16 points adrift of PSV in third.
