Everton boss Koeman gives latest on Sigurdsson transfer

By Harvey Byrne

Everton manager Ronald Koeman has confirmed that Swansea attacker Gylfi Sigurdsson went through a medical at the Toffees on Wednesday morning.

The BBC reported on Tuesday evening that the Blues had agreed a fee with the Welsh club thought to be worth £45million alongside stating that he would undergo a medical at Goodison Park the following day.

Now, when talking about Sigurdsson in his press conference on Wednesday Koeman has revealed that he has went through his medical ahead of a move and that he was one of the key players Everton looked to sign this summer.

The Dutchman’s press conference was covered by Liverpool Echo reporter Phil Kirkbride via his personal Twitter account.

However, those hoping that Sigurdsson could be included in Thursday’s Europa League clash against Hajduk Split may be left disappointed after it was also reported that the Iceland star would not be in the squad.

Sigurdsson has been one of the Premier League’s attacking stars since his move to Swansea in 2014 from Tottenham.

Last season alone he played a huge part in keeping the Swans in England’s top-flight with a return of nine goals and 13 assists from 38 league appearances.

However, he has not featured for Paul Clement’s side in any of their pre-season clashes, while he was also omitted from the season opener against Southampton and he may take a while to get back up to fitness.
