Dønnum, a homegrown product of Valerenga's youth academy, just completed a fine season during which he recorded twelve goals and seven assists in 33 league appearances. The youngster's transfermarkt value has shot up to €800,000 in the last year. Dønnum recently debuted for the Norwegian national team.

Schmadtke and Schäfer enjoy a solid reputation for scouting young talent after years of doing so in the context of German football.
