The 27-year-old is surplus to requirements at Tynecastle and flew back to his homeland after agreeing to terminate his contract in Edinburgh. He will sign a one-year deal to play for Landskrona in this year's Swedish second tier, known as the Superettan.

"When the possibility of playing for BoIS appeared, I could not say no," Noring told his new club's website. "The days I spent in the club convinced me that there is enormous potential here. I'm really looking forward to joining and contributing to what I can for the team."

Noring joined Hearts in July 2016 on a two-year contract and was initially second choice keeper behind Jack Hamilton. He made three first-team appearances last season but none this term.

The arrival of Jon McLaughlin last August pushed the Swede down to third choice and he has been eager to move to secure regular first-team football.
