Sigurdsson agrees permanent Swansea switch

Swans have offer accepted by Hoffenheim for on-loan Iceland midfielder

Gylfi Sigurdsson caught the eye with some fine performances for Swansea since January

Swansea City have confirmed that they have agreed the permanent signing of midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson, subject to a medical.

The Swans have finalised terms with the 22-year-old after a £6.8m offer was accepted by Germany side Hoffenheim and Sigurdsson is expected to undergo a medical this week.

A statement on the club's official website said: "A club record offer of £6.8m has been accepted by the German club, and the 22-year-old is expected in Swansea later this week to undergo a medical before the move is confirmed.

"The club are delighted to have agreed terms with both player and club following Sigurdsson's hugely successful loan spell last season."

The Iceland international joined Swansea on loan from Hoffenheim in January and had an impressive spell at the Liberty Stadium.

He scored seven goals in 18 Barclays Premier League appearances and his displays played a key role in helping Swansea secure an impressive 11th-place finish in the table.

Sigurdsson also became the first Swansea player to win the Premier League Player of the Month award when he picked up the prize for March.
