Runar Alex Runarsson to leave Dijon this summer

Icelandic goalkeeper Runar Alex Runarsson will leave Dijon this summer after losing his number one spot, L’Equipe reports.

Runarsson, capped five times by his country, lost his place to Alfred Gomis this season, making just 11 appearances in Ligue 1.

And on Sunday, Peguy Luyindula, Dijon’s new sporting director, admitted Runarsson needs to play.

“Runarsson is a number one goalkeeper, so he’s going to want some playing time,” Luyindula said.

According to L’Equipe, Runarsson will leave the club this summer in search of regular football.

Last winter, English and Icelandic clubs showed interest in Runarsson, whose Dijon deal runs until June 2022.

Runarsson joined Dijon from Nordsjaelland in June 2018 and was the French club’s first-choice goalkeeper until displaced by Gomis.
