Sigurdsson Joins Everton For £45 Million

The signing of Swansea City midfielder, Gylfi Sigurdsson has been completed by Everton, for a club record fee of £45 million.

The Iceland international has been involved in a drawn out transfer negotiation with Swansea, already having two bids rejected.

Sigurdsson has now completed his move to the Merseyside club, signing a five-year deal with Koeman.

“Hopefully I will continue to create goals and score goals for the team and contribute to the kind of success we’re seeking at the club,” Sigurdsson told EvertonTV.

“This is an ambitious club and it is clear we are moving in a really good direction. The most important thing is that this team keeps winning games and climbing the table — and does that throughout the season.

“For myself, I would like to score as many goals as possible and create as many goals for my team-mates as I can. These are my targets.

“But it is always the same thing: as long as the team is winning I will be more than happy.”

And manager Ronald Koeman was thrilled to land his man.

“I’m really happy because the board and especially our chairman, Bill Kenwright, did everything to get him. It took some time but finally we have signed the player,” Koeman said.

“In my opinion, in his position he is one of the best in the Premier League. We have the player here and that’s really good for the team.”
