Gudjohnsen free to leave Camp Nou

Barcelona striker Eidur Gudjohnsen is set to return to the Premier League this summer, after being told he doesn't figure in Pep Guardiola's plans for next season.

The former Bolton and Chelsea striker has made 72 league appearances for the Catalans, scoring 10 times, since arriving in 2006 and was an unused substitute in the club's Champions League final success against Manchester United in May.

But despite being under contract until 2010, Gudjohnsen is now expected to depart for around €5million, a fee that will interest several Premier League sides, with Blackburn Rovers, West Ham and Tottenham Hotspur all linked with the forward in the past.

"There is a lot of interest from the Premier League," he said earlier this month.

"I had a great time in England and I know the game inside out. I'm well known in England and enjoyed great success there.

"People know my experience, know I will adapt easy to the football."
