Icelandic Footballer Heads for London

After AS Monaco agreed to let Icelandic football player Eidur Smári Gudjohnsen leave, English premier club West Ham expressed interest in a swap agreement. Now Tottenham, another London club, has entered the race for Gudjohnsen.

“He would be a good loan signing. We’ve got a lot of games coming up and he can play in different systems,” Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp told the Daily Mail. Gudjohnsen was earlier stationed at Chelsea and played for Barcelona before leaving for Monaco.

According to the Daily Mail, Gudjohnsen was expected to London yesterday for a medical examination at West Ham. The club’s manager, Gianfranco Zola, is a former teammate of Gudjohnsen’s from Chelsea, Fréttabladid reports.
