Havard Nordtveit linked with West Brom

The last you probably heard of Havard Nordtveit was when he quietly left the Emirates after failing to make an impression in 2010. Poor loan spells saw the Norwegian play for Salamanca, Lillestrom and Nuremberg but Nordtveit eventually found himself a free agent with few prospects.

However Borussia Mönchengladbach had different ideas, signing in 2011 Nordveit has gone on to make 137 appearances for the German side. In the process Nordveit has moved from Centre back to Defensive midfield, a process started at Nuremberg, and has gone on to play in the champions league with the Bundesliga outfit.

Havard Nordtveit is no longer the player that left Arsenal six years ago.

Hence West Brom’s interest.

Standing at 6’2 Nordveit would fit in to Tony Pulis’ style very easily and with Claudio Yacob potentially heading to Sevilla, the Norwegian could be a good replacement.

Nordtveit has recovered his career to become a mainstay in a successful Borussia Monchengladbach side.

With a good passing range and tough tackling, Nordtveit may well come back to show the Premier League and particularly Arsenal what they have been missing.
