Twitter reacts as ex Celtic striker John Guidetti helps Sweden win European Under-21 Championship

The former Manchester City and Stoke player is a free agent this summer, amid reports Newcastle and West Ham are interested in a move.

Former Celtic and Manchester City striker John Guidetti offered a reminder of his talents to those considering signing him this summer, after helping the Sweden Under-21 side to the European Under-21 Championship trophy.

The title win was a phenomenal achievement by the Swedes, with it being the men's team highest profile competition win ever, beating a couple of semi-final highs in previous World Cup competitions.


And Guidetti was central to their success, as he scored two goals throughout the tournament and played 120 minutes as Sweden emerged victorious in a tight final that was decided by a penalty shootout.

The forward once again put in a shift for the Swedes, stretching the Portugal defence as the game on, linking up well with his teammates and nearly netting with a volley at the edge of the area.

He had a strong spell at Scottish champions Celtic last season, scoring 15 goals in 35 games, though most of them came in a scintillating beginning to the loan.

Guidetti is currently a free agent after his Manchester City contract expired, and despite his only Premier League experience coming during a few months with Stoke last season, plenty of sides will be thinking about a deal after his performances this summer.

Newcastle, West Ham, Liverpool and Spurs are all said to be keeping track of him according to the Mail , who quoted the 23-year-old as being open to a deal to any of them, though not until the celebrations had finished.

"They're fantastic football clubs and the Premier League is one of the best in the world, of course it's appealing," the Mail have reported him as saying.

"I trust my agent – I don't know what's concrete, and what's not – I don't want to speculate, I just want to stay focused on what's the truth and I will find out the truth on Friday."

Below are some of the responses Twitter offered up to his part in Sweden's triumph:
