AZ Alkmaar have spoken to Joey Gudjonsson and are hopeful of concluding a deal.Eredivisie outfit AZ Alkmaar have spoken to Joey Gudjonsson and are hopeful of concluding a deal for the midfielder.
The Leicester favourite has now been offered a deal by AZ and will have until the summer to decide whether to move to Holland on a Bosman.
AZ technical director Marcel Brands has confirmed that an offer has been put forward, with a decision not expected immediately.
Ç£I can imagine that he waits on the situation for a while,'' said Brands.
Ç£In the summer he is 26 years old and available on free transfer and that's a very good status for a player of his calibre.
''We respect his provisional choice but we have good hope that he will choose for AZ.''
Gudjonsson is also a target for PSV Eindhoven but it is believed he favours a summer switch to AZ.
