Iceland (4 caps, 1 goal)
After a hectic summer and 10 new arrivals, Chris Turner ended the summer of 2009 with a move for Icelandic international Armann Bjornsson from SK Brann.
UMF Sindri was his first club, where he hit 45 goals in 61 games. His impressive goal ratio earned him a move to Valur, but he could replicate the same kind of form. A brief loan spell at SK Brann, where he hit 3 goals in 7 appearances, signalled the end of his Valur career and he was snapped up by Icelandic champions FH Hafnarfjaroar.
He was a part of the team that won 3 consecutive league titles and, despite only hitting the net on 7 occasions, he finally got his dream move to Brann.
In 2007 his scored 9 times in 26 games before being more regularly used at centre-half, as Brann won the Norwegian Premier League.
He enjoyed his first international appearance for Iceland where he partnered Eidur Gudjohnson up-front against Spain. His second game was also against Spain before he made appearances against Northern Ireland and then Scotland in 2008. He grabbed his first international goal against the Irish in 2007.
In his two season spell at Victoria Park, Bjornsson struggled to hold down a regular first team position. He scored 3 goals in 10 starts during his first season with the club before failing to score in his second and final year with the club.
Although used predominately as a striker in the first team, Bjornsson was often used in defence in Pools' reserve team before being released in May 2010.
