Magpies keen on Gudjohnsen
06 Jun 2008 - 12:13:54
Barcelona's Icelandic forward Eidur Gudjohnsen has again been linked with a return to England, with Newcastle United and West Ham United reportedly on his trail.
The 29-year-old has spent the last two seasons at the Camp Nou, but has struggled to hold down a regular starting spot, scoring ten goals in 64 appearances in total.
"One Premier League club has shown a lot of interest in Eidur," his father and agent, Arnor Gudjohnsen, told BBC Sport.
"He would certainly be interested in a move back to England, but he is not going to rush into making a decision.
"Eidur and his family are settled in Barcelona and he has two years left on his contract, but his chances were limited last season."
Gudjohnsen has already played in England for both Bolton Wanderers and Chelsea, leaving the Blues in the summer of 2006 to link up with Barca in an £8million deal.
