It is understood that Potters boss Gudjon Thordarson was keen to take the 24-year-old to the Britannia Stadium on a three-month loan deal after losing the services of Peter Thorne to Cardiff City.
However, Gianluca Vialli, has snubbed the Second Division club's approach, consigning the forward to life in the Vicarage Road reserves.
The Potters were also recently unsuccessful in trying to lure another Icelandic star - Arnar Gunnlaugsson - to Staffordshire.
