  • Player profile

    The Icelandic midfield man was a fans' favourite at Leicester and will be remembered mostly for his superb goal from the halfway line against Hull City in the 2005-06 season - a goal which saw him win the club's goal of the season award, and the club's player of the season award for that season.

    He had a great shot on him and arrived at City on a free transfer from La Liga side Real Betis. He'd had a season-long loan spell with Wolves the season before. Gudjonsson quickly established himself as a key player at the club and finished the 2005-06 season as the joint-top goalscorer at the club, scoring nine goals in all competitions.

    He left the club at the end of the season following a two-year stint in Leicestershire to join Dutch side AZ. He made 89 appearances for the Foxes and scored 13 goals in total. He later returned to England to play for Burnley.
