Brighton & Hove Albion

In 2010, Agdestein was transferred to English club Brighton & Hove Albion for an undisclosed fee and featured in the development squad. [1] Agdestein made his first competitive appearance for Brighton during an FA Cup 3rd round replay against Wrexham. [2] Three days later, he made his first league appearance for Brighton coming on as a second-half substitute and providing an assist to Will Buckley in a 2–1 victory at Peterborough United. [3] Towards the end of the 2010–11 season, Agdestein had his Brighton contract extended for one-year. [4]

During September 2011, Agdestein joined Conference National side Bath City on loan. [5] However, making three appearance, Agdestein returned to Brighton. [6]

Following his return from Bath City, Agdestein soon played regularly in the reserve team and in March 2012, signed a two-year contract. [7]

On 26 July 2013, Agdestein left Brighton after his contract was terminated by mutual consent despite having one-year left to run. [8]

Inverness Caledonian Thistle

Agdestein signed for Inverness CT in July 2013 on a six- month contract, the club beating off competition from Viking. [9] [10] However, Agdestein suffered a lack of playing time due to the form of Billy McKay and only made one start. Despite a desire to sign a new contract, [11] Agdestein left the club when his contract expired and his agent said he was in talks with English clubs. [12]

Haugesund

After leaving Scotland and not getting a move to England, Agdestein returned to Norway, where he joined Tippeligaen side Haugesund. [13]

On 30 March, he signed a loan deal with OBOS-ligaen club Kristiansund.

After breaking into the first team squad he earned the title as the club's top goalscorer in his final Haugesund season after bagging 10 league goals. [14]

Odd

He signed for Odd on the 17 August on a three year deal. [15] Agdestein only earned 7 league appearances and failed to score a single league goal. He did, however, score a hat-trick against IL Hei in the first round of the 2017 Norwegian Football Cup. [16]

Aalesund

Before the 2018 season he signed for OBOS-ligaen side Aalesunds FK on a three year deal. [17]
