Valon Berisha (born 7 February 1993) is a Kosovar footballer who plays as a midfielder for Red Bull Salzburg in the Austrian Bundesliga. He has previously played for Egersund and Viking in Norway.
Berisha is regarded as one of the biggest talents in Norwegian football, having been invited on several trials with Premier League sides at a young age. Despite this, he chose to stay in Norway where he played top-flight football with Viking since the age of 17. He broke through as a first team regular in 2011, later making his international debut for Norway in January 2012 before moving to Austria. He switched allegiance to Kosovo after the nation became a FIFA member.
Berisha's family is of Albanian ethnicity, and moved from Kosovo before he was born. His younger brother Veton plays for Greuther Fürth.Close
