Agent of Leeds United target Birkir Bjarnason non-committal over potential Elland Road switch

The Icelandic international is a free agent at Italian side Pescara this month.

Leeds United were linked with a move for Icelandic international Birkir Bjarnason yesterday. The report from Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio's official website claimed that Leeds were interested in the Pescara midfielder - who has scored 10 goals for the club this season and has helped them to a crucial Serie B promotion play-off with Bologna.

With his season ongoing it is no surprise that his agent is being non-committal over his future. Jim Solbakken spoke to the Yorkshire Evening Post very briefly yesterday, telling them he had 'no comment' on the future of his client.

The right thing to do from his agent. Bjarnason has two very important games coming up for his current club and distractions need to be kept to a minimum.

As far are Leeds are concerned though Bjarnason would be a very good player. Uwe Rosler knows him from their time together at Norwegian club Viking FK, so it would also appear to be he who is driving the deal, not Massimo Cellino.

Bjarnason is a free agent at the end of this month so he would also prove a cheap option.
