Icelandic international Birkir Bjarnason became Steve Bruce’s fourth signing in January 2017. 

The all-action midfielder joined from FC Basel and penned a three-and-a-half year deal.

Born in Akureyri, his family moved to Norway in 1999 and after representing numerous youth teams, he joined Viking and became a member of the first team at 17.

After establishing himself as a regular figure in the Norwegian leagues – including a one-year a loan at Bodo/Glimt – Bjarnason joined Belgium side Stanard Liege. 

The 28-year-old boasts a wealth of experience across Europe having since represented Pescara, Sampdoria and the Swiss giants.  

He was part of Basel’s 2016 title-winning squad and has played regularly in this season’s Champions League campaign. 

Bjarnason was a star-performer in Iceland’s memorable Euro 2016 run, playing every minute as they reached the quarter-finals. 

He scored the country’s first goal in a major competition against Portugal in a group clash. 

Overall, Bjarnason has played 57 matches for Iceland, scoring eight goals. 

He played 46 matches for Iceland's youth national teams, scoring eight goals.
