Swansea City have agreed a fee with German side Hoffenheim, for the permanent transfer of midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson, reports ESPN. The Icelandic international had an impressive loan spell with the Swans after arriving in the January transfer window and was instrumental in helping the Swans to a wonderful 11th place finish in their debut season.
Sigurdsson scored seven goals and created three others in his 18 league appearances, leading to attention from Manchester United, according to a report by Goal.com. However, the player earlier said he would be happy to stay at the Liberty Stadium and now it appears he may do just that.
Swansea had a bid to sign the 22 year old rejected earlier this month but the two clubs have finally struck deal which will see a fee in the region of £7mn change hands. Sigurdsson cost Hoffenheim £6mn when they recruited him from Reading in 2010 but the player soon fell down the pecking order in Germany, leading to the loan to Swansea.
Meanwhile, West Bromwich Albion have rejected an enquiry from Swansea regarding the availability of midfielder Graham Dorrans and defender Craig Dawson, according to Sky Sports. The Swans' boss Brendan Rodgers has begun planning for next season and is looking to bolster his squad with the Baggies pair.
Scotland international Dorrans joined the club in 2008 and has gone on to make over 100 league appearances for the club, while Dawson - an England Under-21 player - broke into the first team last season.
Finally, Swansea forward Scott Sinclair is reportedly unwilling to sign an extension with the club, according to the Daily Mirror. The 23 year old, who moved to Wales from Chelsea in the summer of 2010, has only one year left on his deal. Sinclair appeared in all 38 league games for the Swans last season, scoring eight goals and making four assists. He had loan stints with six different clubs during his time with Chelsea, before making a permanent switch to the Liberty Stadium.
