7th July 2017

Icelandic midfielder Arnor Gudjohnsen has joined Swansea City on a three-year deal.

The 16-year-old arrives from Iceland Premier League side Breiðablik, featuring for them in the UEFA Youth League.

The attacking midfielder is the half-brother of ex Chelsea and Barcelona striker Eidur Gudjohnsen and son of former Iceland international Arnór Gudjohnsen Snr.

Gudjohnsen Jnr will link up with the under-18 squad this season as they prepare for the start of the 2017/18 campaign in Premier League South.

“It’s great to be here. I am looking forward to the challenge and I am excited to get started,” he said.

“I want to progress myself on and off the pitch while I am here and develop myself for first-team football.

“My dad and brother have helped me a lot throughout my career. They have given me good advice over the years.”
