Norwegians abroud

Has the Norwegian wave of good players stopped? I remember reading about a norwegian being signed by a big club every week, few years ago. Is this the truth or is it just the media who has lost all interest in those kind of news?

It truly seems like the transfer from Norway has stopped, even though the Norwegians abroad like Ole Gunnar Solskjær, John Arne Riise and John Carew do perform well.

There's quite a few reasons for this:
  • Norwegian clubs are expecting bigger fees for their players
  • The European clubs has found new 'markets' like East-Europe

We have at least sold Morten Berre to St Pauli, Tommy Svindal Larsen to Nurnberg, and Trond Fredrik Ludvigsen to Hertha Berlin this winter.

Much more will do the Norwegian league harm IMO. The only downside perhaps, is that they all went to Germany :)

PS If you count it we also sold Albrigtsen to Stoke.

PPS Top players like Mykland, Myhre and Riise have also changed clubs.
