Wigan release Norwegian Haestad
Kristofer Haestad
Haestad found it difficult to adjust to life in the Premiership
Wigan have released Norway midfielder Kristofer Haestad from his loan contract by mutual consent.

The 23-year-old, who only arrived at the JJB Stadium in January, will now return to his parent club IFK Start.

Lactics boss Paul Jewell told the club website: "I cannot fault anything in Kristofer's character and commitment.

"But I think he found it difficult to adjust to the Premiership. Everyone at the club wishes him all the best for the future."

Haestad was also upbeat about his spell at Wigan and refused to rule out a return to English football in the future.

He said: "I enjoyed coming to England and obviously I'm a bit disappointed.

"But working under Paul Jewell was a good experience for me and I would love to have another chance to come to England in the future."
