Everton sign Swansea star Sigurdsson for club-record £45m fee

Everton have completed the signing of Swansea City star Gylfi Sigurdsson for a reported club-record fee of £45 million.

The Iceland international, 27, has inked a five-year deal at the Toffees, putting to bed a drawn-out process between the two clubs.

Sigurdsson had been on Everton’s radar for over a year and the Merseysiders reportedly had two bids previously knocked back by Swansea.

However, Everton have now finally secured their man — increasing their summer spending to well over £100m after also signing the likes of Jordan Pickford, Michael Keane and Wayne Rooney this summer.

Sigurdsson — who scored nine goals and registered 13 assists in the Premier League last season — missed a large chunk of Swansea’s pre-season due to the ongoing speculation surrounding him.
