Former Walsall midfielder Danny Guthrie has secured a new club just a few months after leaving WS1.

Guthrie, who left the club by mutual agreement in February, has joined Icelandic side Knattspyrnufélagið Fram with the club welcoming his arrival on their official website.

Guthrie, a product of the Manchester United and Liverpool youth academies, began his professional career with the Reds in 2005, making a handful of appearances whilst also enjoying loan spells with Southampton and Bolton Wanderers.

Danny joined Kevin Keegan's Newcastle United in the summer of 2008 and went on to make over one-hundred first-team appearances for the Magpies over the next four seasons.

He was released by Newcastle in June 2012 and went on to join Reading later that summer. He would make just shy of seventy first-team appearances for the Royals, also enjoying a loan spell with Fulham before leaving for pastures new once again.

He was soon back in work and signed a two-year deal with Blackburn Rovers - following a successful trial spell - and would make just over forty appearances before leaving the club at the end of the 2016/17 campaign.

After opting to try his hand at football overseas Danny inked a deal with Mitra Kukar in January 2018 but had been out of work since that deal came to an end.

The 34-year-old made forty-four first-team appearances during his time in the Black Country before injuries saw his chances limited ahead of his departure on Deadline Day.

Speaking via FRAM's website Guthrie welcomed the opportunity to link up with the club, he said; "Absolutely delighted to be joining Fram FC, a club with a fantastic history. I can not wait to get to Iceland, meet my coach, my teammates and work hard to get into good shape to start competing and winning games."
