Sigurdsson 'not trying to leave' Swansea

Sigurdsson 'not trying to leave' Swansea

Gylfi Sigurdsson won't push to leave Swansea this summer and will only go if the club want to sell him.

Sigurdsson's nine goals and 13 assists have been crucial for Swansea's survival in the top flight this season and the Iceland global won the club's Player of the Year award for the second consecutive season on Wednesday.

"He can not have another situation like he had there".

Everton, West Ham and Premier League new boys Newcastle have been strongly linked with a summer move for Sigurdsson, who joined Swansea from Spurs in July 2014. He is going to have that in his mind, if he is going to make the next step it has to be a positive one.

"Otherwise he is better staying here, being a key player and building something around moving this club forward".

Swansea playmaker Gylfi Sigurdsson has told the BBC that he won't force a move away from the Liberty Stadium, suggesting any club will have to meet the Welsh club's asking price.

Speaking after picking up his duo of awards, Sigurdsson said: "I expect to stay".

"So it's down to the club if they want to sell me".

Trotz, Capitals expect desperate Penguins for Game 7
Washington also won Game 6 of that series on the road (by a similar score of 5-3) before winning, 2-1, at home in Game 7. By then the Capitals already had a 1-0 lead on Oshie's shot from the right circle on the power play.

Well, the Premier League trio have already been linked with adding the 27-year-old to their squads following another impressive season for the Iceland worldwide at the Liberty Stadium.

Clement hopes Swansea's fine form in the second half of the season will show Sigurdsson they will not be fighting relegation again 2017-18 after the 27-year-old insisted he was not actively seeking an exit.

'I think it'll continue to be like that because whatever happens, happens'.

"I'm not desperate to go or anything".

Football pundit Jamie Redknapp believes Everton should be ready to "cash in" on Ross Barkley, whilst targeting Swansea City's Gylfi Sigurdsson as an ideal replacement. A player of Sigurdsson's huge quality should be fighting near the top of the table rather than the bottom, which he presumably would have more chance of doing at Everton, and Clement knows the former Tottenham star has a decision to make.

"We want him to be able to see from the second half of the season that he is not going to have another situation like this season", the former Bayern Munich assistant manager added.

It's obvious that a player isn't going to come out at an awards ceremony and say that he wants to leave.
