Joined the Academy following a spell on trial. A very intelligent player who can best be described as a creator and scorer of goals. He started the 2016/17 season with the Under-18s, but after some great performances was soon promoted to Peter Grant's PL2 side.

He plays both centrally and out wide, and has a knack for scoring from long range including a half volley with his weak foot against Boro, and another great goal from outside the box against Norwich City in the PL Cup. 

In August 2018, Thorsteinsson joined Danish top-flight side Vendsyssel FF on a season-long loan deal.
