Agent: Hreidarsson keen on Rangers move

Hermann Hreidarsson would be interested in a summer switch to Rangers, according to his agent.

Hermann Hreidarsson would be interested in a summer switch to Rangers, according to his agent.

The Portsmouth defender, 34, is out of contract next month and is currently mulling over his options.

Agent Olafur Gardarsson told the Scottish Sun: “I know Hermann is one of the options Rangers have looked at.

“He is out of contract in the summer and already a couple of clubs have said they want to get him on board.

“I’m not sure what will happen in terms of Hermann’s future. Only time will tell.

“But Hermann likes the idea of playing in Scotland and he would do a good job there.

“He has played his club football in England for a long time and this would be something new.

“People will talk about his age but his physical condition is fantastic. He can play for another three or four years.”

Hreidarsson can play at left-back or centre-back and has been capped 82 times by Iceland.

Meanwhile, Blackpool boss Tony Parkes has revealed he wants to make Charlie Adam’s loan move permanent this summer.

Rangers midfielder Adam, 23, has been at Bloomfield Road since the start of February.

Parkes told the Daily Mail: “I have spoken to our club secretary and we will be in touch with Rangers to see if we can do a deal for Charlie.

“I know Charlie has not been involved at Rangers, but they are a top club. He was unable to get a starting place in their team for any length of time but he has been excellent for Blackpool and we would be delighted to get a deal done.

“We are trying to get it sorted as quickly as possible – if it is able to happen. I think Charlie would like to stay with us. He has enjoyed his time here and hopefully we can get an agreement.

“There was no fee struck when Charlie came on loan, so that has to be negotiated. It is a problem Charlie has set for us because he has played so well that we want to keep him.

“When you come on loan to any club, you put yourself in the shop window. We are aware there might be a bigger club lurking around the corner who might prove more attractive for him. That’s the way football goes, but we are trying to get in first.”
