Photos: Leeds United linked Bjarnason's all-action display in Serie B play-off

Leeds linked Birkir Bjarnason was in action for Pescara last night.

Birkir Bjarnason was in action for Pescara last night in their Serie B promotion play-off against Bologna.

The Icelandic midfielder was linked with a move to Leeds United this week, as first reported by Italian journalist Gianluca di Marzio.

Bjarnason put in an all-action display as his side drew the first leg of the play-off at home 0-0, but was unable to add to the 10 goals he has scored for his side this season.

The 27-year-old becomes a free agent at the end of June, and a move to Leeds could appeal due to the fact he played under Uwe Rosler for three seasons at Viking in Norway earlier in his career.

Tuttomercatoweb rated Bjarnason's performance as a 6.5/10, which happened to be the joint highest of any Pescara player, with his display described as 'dangerous'.

Rosler was installed as Leeds boss last month, and the club are still to make their first signing despite links to numerous players. It is unlikely Bjarnson's future will become any clearer until after the second leg which takes place on Wednesday.
