Sigurdsson to stick with Swansea City till 2020
MIDFIELDER Gylfi Sigurdsson has signed a four-year contract extension with Swansea City, keeping him at the club until 2020,
the Premier League club announced on Tuesday.
The 26-year-old, who joined Swansea from Tottenham Hotspur in 2014, scored 11 league goals
last season as he helped
the Welsh club stay away from relegation trouble, eventually finishing 12th.
He was also part of
Iceland's fairytale 2016 European Championship quarter-final run, making
five appearances and scoring one goal in France.
The set-piece specialist
had been linked with a potential move to Everton
by the British media.
"The main reason
(for signing the contract extension) is that I'm very happy playing football here.
"I feel very good and it's
a great team with a great bunch of lads," he told
the club's website.
"We had the Euros as well, of course, so I was away for five or six weeks, so it's nice that it's finally done and I can concentrate on football and get ready for the season."
Swansea begin their league campaign with a trip to
Turf Moor to face Burnley
on Aug 13.
