‘If he’s good enough for Bielsa…’: Some Leeds fans react to reported interest in £2.3m international

A number of Leeds United fans have given their thoughts on the report claiming the Whites are interested in Iceland international Hjortur Hermannsson.

The 25-year-old centre-back, who currently plays for Danish side Brondby, began his career at icelandic outfit Fylkir before moving to the academy of Eredivisie giants PSV Eindhoven in 2012.

While Hermannsson got plenty of appearances under his belt for PSV’s age-group teams, he didn’t manage to break into the first team, and after a loan spell at Goteborg came to an end, he joined Brondby in 2016.

The Iceland international has since gone on to impress with the Blavitt, making 131 competitive appearances, registering three goals and an assist, and winning the 2017-18 Danish Cup.

Now, Dutch outlet Soccer News – via Leeds Live, 1/8/20, 14:29 – claims that the Whites have earmarked Hermannsson for a potential move ahead of their Premier League return.

In addition, Leeds are reported to have put 2.5m Euros (around £2.3million) aside for his services.

Hermannsson has several things going for him – he’s young, tall (6ft 3in), has done well for Brondby, and clearly must have shown talent to have made it onto PSV’s books.

And of course there are his international exploits – 14 caps for Iceland and a place in Lars Lagerback’s Euro 2016 squad for their heroic run to the quarter-finals, though he ultimately didn’t get any game time.

 

But what have Leeds fans made of the speculation? Below is some of the reaction on social media:
