Swansea City are on the brink of signing midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson in a club record deal.
The Icelandic star has agreed personal terms with the Welsh outfit after a bid of £6.8 million was accepted by his parent club, Hoffenheim.
Sigurdsson was a huge hit for the Swans after joining on loan in January, scoring seven goals 18 appearances as they comfortably avoided relegation on their return to the Premier League.
Boss Brendan Rodgers was clearly impressed with the former Reading player’s contribution and he has moved quickly to secure him on a permanent deal.
The signing also represents something of a coup for Rodgers, as Sigurdsson’s performances reportedly won him plenty of admirers, both in England and further afield.
His arrival is likely to herald the start of a busy summer for the Swans as they aim to build on the impressive progress made in the top flight last term.
Rodgers has already suggested that he will be adding a number of new faces to his squad in a bid to provide more depth and improve on their 11th–placed finish.
Sigurdsson was signed by Hoffenheim for £6 million from the Royals in 2010 but struggled to hold down a first-team place before his loan move to South Wales.
