News Swansea Transfer Rumours

Swansea’s chairman Huw Jenkins has claimed that talismanic midfielder Gylfi Sigurðsson has no measurable value to the club.

The Icelander’s exploits in South Wales have reportedly caught the attention of Everton, Leicester and former club Spurs. He scored 9 Premier League goals last season and made 13 assists despite Swansea battling relegation for most of the season.

Speaking at the club’s kit launch, Jenkins said “We’ve not had any firm bids and if we ever get any firm bids then we will deal with them in the proper way. Our aim is to try and keep Gylfi and Fernando [Llorente], keep our better players and to make sure we can add to Paul’s [Clement] squad.”

“It’s hard to suggest what sort of value Gylfi has in today’s market, but to us he is priceless and we’ve got to make sure we do everything in our power to make sure he stays with us.”

Jenkins also confirmed that the club are pursuing a loan deal for Chelsea youngster Tammy Abraham. The striker scored 26 goals on loan at Bristol City last season and has been linked to other Premier League clubs.

“If you look at the options which have been publicised, Brighton, Newcastle and ourselves. So it is left to Tammy and his family to decide where he wants to go next. They know we are in the mix and we will keep our fingers crossed that he chooses us.”

The England U21 star claimed a decision on his future will be made following his European U21 campaign in Poland where he is joined in the squad by Swansea’s Alfie Mawson.
