The 21-year-old returns to his homeland with Esbjerg after five years on Tyneside, where he posted a classy farewell message via his Instagram page.
He said: “Would like to thank everyone associated with @NUFC for the last five years of my life.
"Can’t put into words how much I’ve enjoyed my time at this fantastic club.
"Thank you to all my teammates, all the staff and everyone involved for making me the person and player I am today.”
