The 25-year-old's agent, Gulli Tomasson, has admitted the central defender is in demand, but that his top priority would be to play in England.

Ambitious

"There are a lot of clubs watching Solvi as he has been playing really well," Tomasson told skysports.com. "I have heard about Sunderland and Fulham, but it is just speculation so far. "Solvi is highly ambitious and of course he would be interested in playing in the Premier League in England. "There have been some offers for him and we will see what happens in January."
