Gylfi Sigurdsson warned of Tottenham repeat if he leaves Swansea

Gylfi Sigurdsson warned of Tottenham repeat if he leaves Swansea

The Icelandic worldwide has enjoyed a fine season grabbing nine assists and 13 goals in a struggling Swansea team - a combined total only matched in the top flight by Tottenham's Christian Eriksen.

Gylfi Sigurdsson will be better off at Swansea if he is to have a repeat of his experience at Tottenham, warns Paul Clement.

Pochettino is thought to believe Sigurdsson could be a better and cheaper alternative to signing long-term target Ross Barkley from Everton.

Swansea City playmaker Gylfi Sigurdsson has insisted that he is "very happy" in South Wales and does not want to leave.

Sigurdsson, who signed a new four-year contract last August, was named Swansea's player of the year on Wednesday night - the first player to retain the trophy.

Despite the Swans spending the majority of the season in a relegation battle where they eventually secured their Premier League safety with one game to spare, the 27-year-old admitted.

The Icelandic worldwide signed a new contract with the Swans last summer after being pursued by Everton for most of the close season, and it is likely the 27 year old will be subject to more transfer speculation over the next few months after an excellent campaign in the Premier League. "It's down to them, but I'm very happy here", he said, as reported by the Liverpool Echo.

I'm not desperate to go or anything. A player of Sigurdsson's enormous 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. It (speculation) doesn't bother me what people are talking about. It has been easy in the last couple of months because we've been in a very serious position in the league, so it's been easy to concentrate on that.

"I don't think a major overhaul is required".

The Toffees are one of the teams which have been credited with an interest in Sigurdsson as Ronald Koeman aims to bolster his creative options ahead of next season which will include a Europa League campaign.

"You could see that from the first day".

"A lot of players have to make that decision in their careers".
