Many Fulham fans have been left frustrated after they announced the departure of a young winger.
Jon Dagur Thorsteinsson, an Iceland U-21 international, left the club to join Danish side AGF Aarhus.
Thorsteinnsonn, 20, will officially leave Fulham on July 1.

Born in Reykjavik, the Icelandic has been on loan at Danish Superliga side Vendsyssel FF, where he played 26 times, scoring four goals and assisting four times – though he was unable to prevent them from getting relegated via the play-offs.
The youngster must have done well enough to impress in Denmark, though, with fellow Superliga side AGF Aarhus capturing his signature.
Within a statement announcing his departure, Fulham said: “We’d like to wish Jon all the best in the future and thank him for his services at Fulham.”
However, less impressed are the Fulham fans who are concerned about the club allowing so many of their young players to leave the club.
The Twitter replies to the news were mostly negative, with numerous people asking “why?” he left the club.
Other frustrated fans said: “damn, really wanted to see him develop” and one fan even asked if “we got any kids left in the club now?”.
Here are some of the responses to the news…
Another good youngster out the door
