torbjorn seagullsNorwegian U21 international joins the squad

Caley Thistle have their own version of Norwegian Rhapsody after signing a tall striker who has played for Norway at under-21 level.

Torbjorn Agdestein, who will be 22 in September, has been signed by manager Terry Butcher on a six-month contract after being released by Brighton and Hove Albion.

'Toby', as he is known, has shown his paces with Caley Jags and manager Butcher said: "He is 6 feet one inch tall and gives us the option of height up front -- quite a contrast with wee Billy Mckay, our top striker.

"We like the look of Toby, he's young and strong and willing to learn. We're happy he has agreed to sign until the January window to boost our attacking resources and we can make a decision at that point."

Agdestein played for home town team Stord Idrettslag in Norway, scoring 16 goals in 35 appearances, before Gus Poyet signed him for Brighton for a small fee three years ago. He played initially in their development squad.

He made his senior debut in an FA Cup replay agaiinst Wrexham and went on to make six first team appearances for the Seagulls and six more while on loan at Conference side Bath City.
