'Here at a great club'

23 March 2013

Icelandic pair delighted to agree moves

Promising Icelandic duo Tomas Urbancic and Samuel Fridjonsson expressed their delight after agreeing their summer moves to Reading Football Club earlier this week.

The pair have been already linked up with the club's successful Academy, and have been allowed to train with the Royals by their respective clubs for the remainder of the season.

16-year-old Tomas and 17-year-old Samuel told Reading FC Player a little bit more about themselves as players - and touched on a certain former Royal of the same nationality.

"I'm Tomas - I'm an attacking midfielder or a playmaker and I can play on both wings. I would say that my role model is probably Gylfi Sigurdsson.

"It (the club) is famous in Iceland because Gylfi is like a hero for the youngsters."

"I'm Sam - I'm a midfielder and a defender and I like to pass the ball," said Fridjonsson.

"I would say Gylfi and Eidur Gudjohnsen are the players we look up to. I hope to train well here - it's a great club."
