Sigurdsson: "I'm very happy" to stay at Swansea

The Blues boss wants his side to focus on their remaining matches including the FA Cup final

The Blues boss wants his side to focus on their remaining matches including the FA Cup final

He scored nine goals - and provided a further 13 assists - to help the Swans secure their top flight status for another year in a campaign that often looked to be leading towards certain relegation to the Championship.

Paul Clement believes Gylfi Sigurdsson's painful experience at Tottenham could persuade him to stay at Swansea.

It has been reported that Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino wants to re-sign Sigurdsson as he believes that the Iceland global midfielder is a better and cheaper alternative to Everton star Ross Barkley.

Swansea playmaker Gylfi Sigurdsson has told the BBC that he won't force a move away from the Liberty Stadium, suggesting any club will have to meet the Welsh club's asking price.

Manager Ronald Koeman has seemingly become frustrated with the situation and has left the midfielder with an ultimatum - sign a new deal or be prepared to leave in the summer.

Everton and West Ham are among the teams to have been linked with the 27-year-old, who was named players' and supporters' player of the year for a second straight season on Wednesday. "That's what he has got here at Swansea, and I hope he stays here".

"I'm not trying to leave, not desperate to go or anything". But I was very happy when I was on loan here and then again in the last three years.

"He doesn't want to go somewhere else and find he is in and out of the side".

"The coaching staff who came in are top notch and Paul knows what he's doing", Sigurdsson said. A player of Sigurdsson's vast quality should be fighting near the top of the table rather than the bottom, which he presumably would have more chance of doing at Everton, and Clement knows the former Tottenham star has a decision to make.

"It has been easy in the last couple of months because we've been in a very serious position in the league, so it's been easy to concentrate on that", Sigurdsson added.

"I don't think a major overhaul is required".

Sigurdsson moved from White Hart Lane to Swansea in the summer of 2014.

"You could see that from the first day".

"A lot of players have to make that decision in their careers", he said.
