According to Germany’s main sporting tabloid and Norway’s Nettavisen Sport, FK Bodø/Glimt are set to try and bring left-back Frederik André Bjørkan back to the Eliteserien during the coming winter transfer window.

Reliable German and Norwegian sources report that 24-year-old left-back Frederik André Bjørkan is being courted by his old club FK Bodø/Glimt for a potential return during the coming January transfer window. The eight-times-capped international jointed Germany’s Hertha BSC on a free transfer last spring, yet failed to make much of an impact during 10 appearances for the Charlottenburg side during the second half of last season.
Bjørkan was shipped out on loan to Feyenoord Rotterdam prior to the start of the current campaign, where he’s had even more difficulty finding playing time. The fullback has only made one appearance for “De club aan de Maas” this year. There has been some talk of Hertha recalling Bjørkan early, particularly in light of the fact that left-backs Maximilian Mittelstädt and potentially even captain Marvin Plattenhardt now look set to depart at the end of the season.
Germany’s Sport Bild and Norway’s Nettavisen Sport report that Bjørkan’s old Norwegian club has been in contact with him directly about pushing for a return once the loan is cancelled. Björkan remains under contract with Hertha through 2025, but Bødo could still likely re-acquire their old player on the cheap. Bjørkan retains an estimated market value of just €1.5 million in the latest transfermarkt listings.
