Sigurdsson Set To Join Tottenham Hotspur

Sigurdsson Set To Join Tottenham Hotspur

Gylfi Sigurdsson looks set to join Tottenham Hotspur next week as reports suggest he has agreed terms and passed a medical.

The former Swansea City loanee has a lot to thank Brendan Rodgers for, but he will snub the Irishman to join Spurs, who finished fourth in the Premier League last season.

Before the 22 year-old was signed on loan by the previous Swans boss in January, the Icelandic midfielder was out of favour at German outfit Hoffenheim and struggled to get regular first team games.

However, after a successful spell on loan at Swansea City, Sigurdsson has earned himself a big money move to the Premier League, despite having only played barely five months of football in the English top flight division.

After Rodgers left the Liberty Stadium to take over at Liverpool, Gylfi looked certain to follow him to Anfield, but Spurs, despite being managerless, came in with a late, improved bid to scupper their chances of landing the promising youngster. It appears better personal terms attracted him to White Hart Lane over Anfield.

Swansea City ruled out their chances of keeping Sigurdsson permanently because they wouldn't get involved in a money war with the other two interested clubs, as they realised they couldn't compete financially. Michael Laudrup believes the money could be spent elsewhere on other targets that he will pursue over the coming weeks.

We finished 4th thanks much to our disgust with lack of CL to show for it, but thanks for the reminder that we *****ed up 3rd in true Tottenham fashion.

You should visit some of the media sites. Liverpool fans convinced they are a more attractive proposition than us. Apparently the only reason anyone would pick us over Liverpool is higher wages lol

Wait a minute, wasn't Sigurdsson loaned to Swansea, or did Swansea buy him outright? Cos, if he was loaned to Swansea, I fail to see how they can keep him permanently? Surely they'd have to get in line with the other clubs who wish to buy him?Michael Laudrup believes the money could be spent elsewhere on other targets, WHAT MONEY, HOW MUCH??

I know it's a Spurs related article too, but there isn't any activity from Swansea fans even though the piece is published on Vital-Swansea. The Swans may not be able to compete with Spurs or Salivapool financially for his signature, but I'm still a little surprised that there isn't a single Swansea fan on here with an opinion. If you lot are struggling to put into words what you're going through, losing your manager and possibly some of your best players, then perhaps you could sketch me a picture instead?

Im a Swansea fan, Spurs are a crap overrated team and the only reason he will go there is for money. Liverpool or his favored team Swansea who gave him a chance are much better propositions. Money grabbing idiot. No one likes Spurs.
