Gylfi Sigurdsson: Everton Agree £45m Deal For Swansea Midfielder

The two Premier League clubs have agreed a £45m fee and Sigurdsson will sign a five-year contract with the Toffees.

The Icelandic playmaker poised to finally complete his move to Goodison Park after the clubs came to an agreement over a fee for the star.

The saga has dragged on for most of the summer with Swansea initially valuing the 27-year-old at £50m.

Sigurdsson pulled out of Swansea's pre-season tour to the United States after Everton's interest had become clear.

They have already turned down two bids from Everton and rejected a reported £40m offer one from 2016 champions Leicester at the beginning of the summer.

Sigurdsson missed Swansea's 0-0 draw at Southampton, which led to criticism of the transfer deadline from the club's own manager Paul Clement after he was forced to leave him out.


Sigurdsson, who scored nine goals and contributed 13 assists during Swansea's battle against relegation last season, is set to undergo a medical today.

Only Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne and Tottenham's Christian Eriksen brought more goals and assists to their sides last campaign.

And Swansea were just as keen to close the deal to give them time to find replacements before the transfer window closes.

Koeman has already splashed out almost £100m on the likes of Davy Klaassen, Jordan Pickford, Michael Keane and Sandro Ramirez, while Wayne Rooney and Cuco Martina joined on free transfers.

Swansea have made the signing of Wilfried Bony from Manchester City a priority.
