Swansea star Gylfi Sigurdsson has dismissed talk of him leaving the club this summer following reported interest from Newcastle, Everton and West Ham.
Sigurdsson has had an outstanding season, scoring 9 goals and assisting 13 in a struggling campaign for Swansea – a combined tally that can be matched only by Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen.
We have been linked with a move for the Icelandic number 10 in recent months, however the man himself has distanced himself from a move away this summer.
Sigurdsson said the following today when asked about his Swansea future:
“I expect to stay.
“I signed a new contract last summer and I’ve got three years left, so it’s down to the club if they want to sell me.
“It’s down to them, but I’m very happy here. I’m not trying to leave, not desperate to go or anything.
“It’s not like I want to go, it’s just very calm and I’m not focused or concentrating on what people are writing.
“I’ve always been happy here and you only have to look at the coaching staff who came in to see there are good things happening here. They’re top notch and Paul Clement knows what he’s doing.
“As I said, I’m happy here; I’ve played a lot of football and the goals and the assists have been coming for last three years.”
Sigurdsson has exactly what we require this summer – proven Premier League quality.
That would come with a hefty price, however, with the 27 year-old likely to demand a fee upwards of £20m.
With the likes of Everton in the mix for his signature, Newcastle would struggle to attract Sigurdsson as it is, but with his considerable price tag and his desire to stay with Swansea, this one may be a non starter this summer.
