Everton manager Ronald Koeman confident Swansea's Gylfi Sigurdsson deal will go through

Ronald Koeman anager of Everton looks on prior to the Premier League match between Everton and Burnley at Goodison Park

The two sides have been in discussions over a deal for the Iceland global for some weeks, although reports in recent days have suggested that the talks have stalled as the parties haggle over a transfer fee of between £40m and £50m.

Everton boss Ronald Koeman, who is preparing for his second season in charge of the Merseyside club, has made signing the Icelandic midfielder a top priority and will be seen as their most important signing if a deal goes through. "But what you can't do is control the decision-making of the other club". We have seen it before.

Clement's transfer plans have been put on hold as the club wait on the Sigurdsson situation, with Swansea ready to give the coach funds from a sale to strengthen his squad. "He will not be in the squad".

"We have a number of weeks to go and I don't anticipate it going to the end of the window", Clement said of the Sigurdsson situation.

"One of the reasons I don't want to talk about other names is because unless something is done with Gylfi's situation there is no point saying anything".


While this drags on, Swansea haven't got the use of their star player anyway, so what are they trying to achieve?

"They have worked hard and we are in good shape going into the first game".

"He's got a year to go on his deal and we'd like him to stay for this year and longer", said the Swansea manager, who will be without the Spaniard for at least the first two matches of the season after the forward broke an arm in a cycling accident in the close-season. I heard some rumours that talks had broken down but still we are in negotiations with Swansea, ' insisted Koeman, whose team open their Premier League campaign against Stoke tomorrow.

Paul Clement expects Fernando Llorente to stay at Swansea City this season, despite continued links with Chelsea. We've got a good idea of what players are going to cost.

'It is always a game between the buying club and the selling club but we are close and let's hope we get the agreement as soon as possible.
