Arsenal have confirmed that young midfielder Kristoffer Olsson has made his loan move to Danish club FCMidtjylland a permanent one during the ongoing transfer window.

"Kristoffer Olsson has completed a permanent move to FC Midtjylland, where he has been on loan since September," a statement on Arsenal's official site read.

The Swedish midfielder has been on loan at the Danish club since the start of the season and has featured just six times for them during his spell.

Midway through his spell with Midtjylland, the Swedish youngster made it clear that he wants to play at a higher level and was targeting a move to the Championship in England. But he was also keeping his options open when considering his next move.

Olsson was looking to come back to England and play in one of the smaller clubs in the hope of impressing the Arsenal manager. The midfielder revealed that he looked up to players like Rosicky and Arteta and revealed his preferred position to be a deep lying midfielder other than playing as a number 10.

The 19-year-old midfielder made one first-team appearance for the Gunners during his stay at the club and it came during the League Cup win over West Bromwich Albion last season, when he also netted a penalty in the shoot-out.

However, he was an integral part of the youth set up at the club and also captained the Arsenal U19's to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Youth League in the 2013/14 season.

"Everyone at Arsenal would like to thank Kristoffer for his contribution to the club, and to wish him well for the future," the statement concluded.
