Egil was a regular in the Blackburn Rovers squad in the first half of 2000-01 although he was often used as a substitute. He scored in quick succession against Tranmere Rovers and Huddersfield Town towards the end of October but seemed to slip out of the first-team picture and in March he went on loan to Manchester City as Joe Royle sought to give a boost to his strike force.

He made his debut against Tottenham Hotspur from the subs' bench but never played a full 90 minutes during his time at Maine Road. He found it difficult to make an impact in a struggling team that seemed to be constantly changing.

At his best, he is a powerful striker who is effective in the air and has a good eye for goal.
