Player description
On the 31st January 2011 Fulham Football Club confirmed the signing of Eidur Gudjohnsen on loan from Stoke City until the end of the season.

The Iceland international brough with him a reputation for being an outstanding technical player with a high degree of tactical awareness, versatility and an eye for goal.

Gudjohnsen has won a glittering array of honours with two Premier League titles, one La Liga title, the Eredivisie title, the Copa del Rey and UEFA Champions League being the most notable.

Gudjohnsen started his career at Valur Reykjavik before spells at both PSV Eindhoven and KR Reykjavik. But it was after he joined Bolton Wanderers in 1998 that he stepped into the limelight. Between 1998 and 2000 he made 55 appearances for the Trotters, scoring 18 times and catching the eye with some outstanding performances.

A move to Chelsea followed - Gudjohnsen spent six seasons at Stamford Bridge before signing for Spanish giants FC Barcelona.

In August 2009 he joined Monaco on a two-year deal. He remained at the Stade Louis II until January 2010 when he was loaned to Tottenham Hotspur for the remainder of the 2009/10 season. Gudjohnsen then moved to Stoke City in August 2010.

After only making five substitute appearances for Stoke, GuĂ°johnsen joined Fulham on loan.

During his 5 month stint with Fulham he made 4 starts and 6 sub appearances, all in the League, but missed on on the goals front.

Gudjohnsen left for AEK Athens at the end of the season.
