Everton agree £45m deal for Swansea midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson

Everton have agreed a deal to sign Swansea City midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson for a fee believed to be about £45 million.

The Iceland player scored nine goals and contributed 13 assists last season to help the Swans avoid relegation from the Premier League, the BBC reports on Wednesday.

The 27-year old will have a medical at Goodison Park on Wednesday.

Sigurdsson will be a record signing for Everton, who paid £31.8 million to Chelsea for striker Romelu Lukaku in 2014.

Swansea set an asking price of £50 million for Sigurdsson in July after rejecting an offer worth about £40 million from Leicester.

The Welsh club then turned down a similar bid from the Toffees, who had been interested in signing the Iceland playmaker for more than a year.

Spurs will reportedly benefit from a 10 per cent sell-on clause, having sold Sigurdsson to Swansea in the deal which took Wales full-back Ben Davies and goalkeeper Michel Vorm to White Hart Lane.
