Norway international Fredrik Stromstad has agreed a three-year deal with Ligue 1 club Le Mans.

The IK Start midfielder, who has made 15 appearances for his country, is set to travel to France for a medical.

An undisclosed fee has been agreed between Le Mans and Start, but Stromstad will remain in his homeland until 6th July.

IK Start administrative director Jan Oddvar Skisland said: "Le Mans and Start have agreed and the board of Start have ratified the transfer.

"The reason is that we had promised Fredrik this. I know that this is a dream he had and now he will join a good club in France."

Stromstad told fvn.no: "This is terrific for me, but it's a bit sad and special to leave Start.

"This is a big chance, a dream come true."
