As rosenborg.info reported already in September, the future of the 18-year old was uncertain. He stayed in Norway on a tourist visa.
"It was most unclear whether he'd get a new working permit," Rune Bratseth explains to rosenborg.info.
At the same time he had very slim chances at getting to play. Hyka played five out of six matches in the Royal League, but during Christmas, three non-EEA players have arrived at Lerkendal: Didier Konan, Abdoulrazack Traore and Alejandro Lago. From before, Yssouf Kone is in the first squad. Only three of these can be in the match squad at any time.
"We were left with five such players, and Hyka came last in that queue. That is a pity in many ways, as he is a very fine lad and a good player with a great potential. But this situation wasn't good for his own development, and we were forced to make this decision," Bratseth says.
As a result, Jahmir Hyka won't return from his Christmas holiday at home in Albania. Rosenborg tried to loan him out, but failed. Instead his 3-year deal with RBK is now cancelled. For the moment he is a Dinamo Tirana player again, but last year, clubs in both England, Spain and Greece showed interest for the U21 international.
It is not impossible that Hyka will return to Lerkendal later in his career.
"We'll keep in touch and follow his development, and then we'll see what happens," Rune Bratseth ends.
