Everton's £40M Gylfi Sigurdsson Bid Reportedly Rejected by Swansea City

Everton's £40M Gylfi Sigurdsson Bid Reportedly Rejected by Swansea City”

The Telegraph claims Sigurdsson has said "his goodbyes to the Swansea squad this morning" and the former Tottenham man seems nearly certain to secure a move to Everton in the next few weeks.

Swansea had been insistent on holding out for £50m if they were to sell their star performer, but both parties now expect a deal to be reached just short of that sum.

Sigurdsson did play in Wednesday's pre-season loss against Barnet, and even captained the side in the second half, as he has done before in the Premier League.

The club have also confirmed the 27-year-old will not travel with the first-team squad for their pre-season tour of the United States of America, prompting suggestions that Sigurdsson has had his head turned.

The club said on their Twitter feed that "Gylfi did not feel in the right frame of mind to travel due to the current uncertainty over his future".

Clement said of the situation, "He is a player here at the moment".

"I've made it very clear I want him to stay here".

'We had that situation with Jack Cork. "There was no thought of moving on Jack but it got to a point where Burnley came in with a really good offer".

"That might end up being the case with Gylfi".

Understand Sigurdsson told Swansea at 8.30 this morning he wasn't going to U.S., 45mins before team left hotel.

'I don't know how people are going to behave in the future.

Swansea believe the £50m figure could be met with the inclusion of add-ons in any deal for the Iceland global, who scored nine goals and set up 13 more in last season's Premier League. I know the kind of character I worked with past year - someone who's very professional.

"He's one of our most valuable players".
