Holmbert Fridjonsson's agent 'expects' summer departure from Celtic

Holmbert Fridjonsson's agent expects the player to leave Celtic this summer.

The agent of Celtic striker Holmbert Fridjonsson has told Tipsbladet in Denmark that his client is expecting to be sold this summer.

Fridjonsson, 22, joined Celtic from Icelandic club Fram in January 2014, but found first team football hard to come by under Neil Lennon before being snubbed by new boss Ronny Deila last summer.

The giant centre forward headed to Denmark with Brondby along with Celtic team-mate Teemu Pukki, but has scored just once this season in 11 games for the club.

Even though Celtic need a striker with John Guidetti set to return to Manchester City at the end of his loan deal this summer, it looks unlikely Fridjonsson will play any part under Deila when he returns to Glasgow this summer.

Now, Fridjonsson's agent Magnus Agnar Magnusson has told Tipsbladet that he expects his client to be sold, but he is still waiting for clarification from Celtic over their plans for the Iceland international.

Additionally, Magnusson says that it's likely Fridjonsson will stay in Denmark, with more than three clubs across the top two divisions of Danish football interested in striking a deal with the Bhoys, who are unlikely to put up too much resistance this summer.

"We generally expect that he will not continue to play for Celtic, but it has not been clarified yet," said Magnusson. "We must find a solution with Celtic, but I will say that it is likely that he continues in Denmark. There are clubs from the Super League and the 1st Division who are interested. There are more than three clubs that have shown interest," he added.
