In 2014, the then 18-year old joined Nordsjælland. In 2018, the Icelandic left the Danish team and moved to France with Dijon. Unfortunately the statistics don’t bode too well for the new man who stands at 6’2″. According to WhoScored, of all the goalkeepers who have played 20 games or more since the beginning of the 2018/19 season in the French Premier League, he is the goalkeeper with the weakest percentage of saved shots. 57.8 percent.
