Eidur Gudjohnsen’s agent has played down speculation linking the Barcelona forward with a move to Aston Villa.
The Icelandic looks set to leave Barcelona this summer after dropping down the pecking order at Camp Nou, and a number of clubs are thought to be keen on bringing the 29-year-old back to the Premier League. Villa, Manchester City, West Ham and Portsmouth are all reported to be interested in Gudjohnsen.
The player’s father and agent, Arnor Gudjohnsen, says his son would be interested in a move back to England, but is unlikely to be keen on a switch to Villa for personal reasons.
“I have seen some speculation about Eidur and Aston Villa, but I don’t think he was very keen on that,” Gudjohnsen Snr told skysports.com.
“I think if he was to return to England he would prefer to go to London or Manchester rather than Birmingham.
“There are a few clubs interested, but there is nothing serious at the moment.
“I think he will leave Barcelona and he is keeping his options open at present.”
