Sigurdsson to explain Liverpool move to new Swansea boss
Gylfi Sigurdsson is expected to choose a move to Liverpool over extending his stay at Swansea City, the Daily Mirror reports, but the Iceland midfielder will explain to the new Swansea manager why he has made his choice, the newspaper adds.
Sigurdsson joined Swansea on loan in the January transfer window and was a strong success at the Liberty Stadium, with all parties appearing keen to make the move permanent. But when Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers left to the club to replace Kenny Dalglish at Liverpool, Sigurdsson reportedly had second thoughts about committing himself to the South Wales side.
Instead, Sigurdsson is likely to complete a move to Anfield worth just under £7m, the same figure Swansea were prepared to pay, but will meet with the Swans’ new manager to explain his decision. The club does not yet have a new man in place but the Mirror names former Denmark midfielder Michael Laudrup as the likely candidate.
