Profile:

After eight seasons at Anfield (he came in as a replacement for Julian Dicks), Bjornebye is currently on loan with Brondby. He was struggling to get into the first team at Anfield with the likes of Steve Staunton and Dominic Matteo ahead of him in the queue.

Just as his club career was getting back on track in Denmark, he earned a surprise recall to the international scene after announcing his retirement from from international football after France 98.

His experience will stand him in good stead and those familiar surging runs, pinpoint crosses and crunching tackles may be seen again this summer.

Came on as a sub against Yugoslavia and started against Slovenia. Rumoured to be Blackburn bound.
