Tottenham are preparing to host Swansea in the Premier League on Saturday at White Hart Lane.
It is two sides that have shared a large number of players over the years despite the geographical differences and stature between the two teams.
Steven Caulker, Mark Gower, Wayne Routledge, Kyle Naughton and Tom Carroll are all included in the list of names to have represented both sides.
Now Football Insider has selected the best three players to have worn both clubs colours:
Spurs made the move to bring Sigurdsson to north London from Hoffenheim in 2012 for an£8.8million fee.
He had enjoyed a successful six-month loan in the second half of the 2011-12 season with the Swans, which brought five assists and seven goals in 19 appearances.
However, the now 27-year-old did not enjoy the same success at Tottenham, scoring just 13 goals and providing nine in 83 fixtures from his attacking midfield position.
The Iceland international eventually rejoined Swansea just two years later in a swap deal for the next player in the list…..
The Wales international left-back broke through the Swansea academy in 2012 at the age of 19.
He became a regular in the 2012-13 campaign and just three months after his debut he was handed a new three-and-a-half-year deal.
His first goal for the club against Stoke in 2013 saw him named the youngest ever scorer in the Premier League for the Swans at 19 years and 270 days.
Davies’ rise caught the attention of Mauricio Pochettino and Tottenham, who brought him to the club on a five-year deal in the summer of 2014.
Currently still with Spurs, Davies has proved good backup to Danny Rose, playing in 65 encounters for the club.
Another Swansea player who was included in the exchange to take Sigurdsson from Tottenham to the Liberty Stadium.
The now 33-year-old initially joined the Swans from Eredivisie side Utrecht in 2011 for a £1.5million deal.
He rose to fame during his three-year stay with the Welsh club and managed to keep an impressive 31 clean sheets in 97 appearances in all competitions.
Since his move to White Hart Lane in 2014 he has stepped in well for the world-class first choice Hugo Lloris when needed.
The Holland international has featured 26 times for Tottenham in total, conceding just 26 goals and keeping eight shut outs.
