Anders Ågnes Konradsen (born 18 July 1990) is a Norwegian professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Rennes in the French Ligue 1. He has previously played for the Norwegian clubs Bodø/Glimt and Strømsgodset. He was a part of the Norwegian team that played in the 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship, and has also been capped for Norway at senior level.

Early years[edit]

Konradsen was born in Bodø,[2] where he also grew up. He is an older brother of fellow footballer Morten Konradsen.[3]

He was promoted to Bodø/Glimt's first-team squad along with Stefan Johansen ahead of the 2007 season, and Konradsen made his first-team debut against Lofoten in the second round of the 2007 Norwegian Football Cup.[4] He first represented Norway at under-16 level,[5] and after his performances for the under-18 team he was wanted by the Italian side Sampdoria.[6]

Club career[edit]

Konradsen made his break-through in Bodø/Glimt's first team in the 2009 season, and played 26 matches as a winger for the team that was relegated from Tippeligaen.[4] In the following season, he was Bodø/Glimt's top goalscorer in the First Division with nine goals.[7]

After the 2010 season, Konradsen was wanted by Tromsø[4] and Aalesund[7] in addition to Ole Gunnar Solskjær's Molde,[8] but joined Strømsgodset ahead of the 2011 season in a deal where Jim Johansen transferred the other way.[9]

Konradsen was sold to the French club Rennes for 15 million NOK in January 2013,[10] and became the most expensive player Strømsgodset had ever sold.[11] He made his debut for Rennes in the Ligue 1 in the 2–0 victory against Toulouse on 10 February 2013.[12]

International career[edit]

Konradsen has represented Norway from under-16 to under-23 level,[5] and was included in the Norwegian under-21 squad for the 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship.[13] Konradsen started the opening match against Israel U-21, and had one shot in the crossbar and another in the post when Norway drew 2–2.[14] In the second match of the tournament against England U-21, Harmeet Singh was chosen ahead of Konradsen in the starting line-up.[15]

Konradsen made his debut for the senior team in the friendly match against Hungary in November 2012,[5] and was also called up for the friendly matches against South Africa and Zambia in January 2013, but withdrew from the squad due to sickness.[16]
