Victor Boniface will get his chance for more regular first-team football when the new season begins this weekend in Norway following the departure of his more experienced rival.
The first-team chances for former Flying Eagles striker Boniface were limited by free-scoring Danish rival Kasper Junker.
The 27-year-old Junker netted 27 goals in 25 matches and this has now been rewarded with a two million Euros transfer to Japanese club Urawa Reds.
Boniface, 20, scored six goals in 24 appearances for Bodo/Glimt to clinch a historic Norwegian league crown last year.
They open their title defence on Saturday at home against Tromso.
