Pen Pic

Helguson started his career with Þróttur in his native Iceland before moving to Lillestrom in Norway. Soon after Watford brought him over to England.

He made 174 league appearances for the Hornets over five years at Vicarage Road, before making the switch to Premier League Fulham for £1.3m.

Two years at Craven Cottage passed with 11 Premier League goals in 57 appearances for the Whites, before Heidar moved north with Bolton Wanderers.

Just over a year with the Trotters has yielded limited opportunity for the experienced international, who has made only seven Premier League appearances.

After a prologued period of silence Helguson eventually signed for QPR on emergency loan on November 20, and the deal was made permanent in early January 2009.

An initial spell of goals had soon passed and the Icelandic international was farmed back on loan to former club Watford.

While looking to be on his way out Helguson impressed boss Neil Warnock and since made his way back into the first-team set-up at Loftus Road, helping QPR to achieve promotion and scoring a winner against rivals Chelsea.

Helguson departed for Cardiff City for an undisclosed fee on August 02, 2012.
