Swans strike Sigurdsson deal
Swansea have had a club record bid of £6.8million for Gylfi Sigurdsson accepted by Hoffenheim, and have also agreed terms with the player.
The 22-year-old arrived at the Liberty Stadium in January on loan, and he impressed during that spell by scoring seven goals in 17 appearances.
The German Bundesliga club signed Sigurdsson in 2010 in a £6.5million transfer from Reading.
Swansea's initial bid of £4million was rejected by Hoffenheim, who are keen to recoup the fee they paid for Sigurdsson.
Sigurdsson will be Brendan Rodgers' first summer signing as the Swansea manager looks to build on the foundation his team laid on their return to the top-flight last term.
The midfielder will undergo a medical this week before the deal can be officially finalised, according to a statement from the club.
The Icelandic midfielder was named March's Premier League Player of the Month, becoming the first Swansea player to win the award.
Sigurdsson's move will smash the club's record for a transfer fee, previously held by Danny Graham when he completed a £3.5million switch from Watford last summer.
"Swansea City can today confirm a transfer fee and personal terms have been agreed for Hoffenheim midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson," said a statement.
"A club record offer of £6.8million has been accepted by the German club, and the 22-year-old is expected in Swansea later this week to undergo a medical before the move is confirmed.
"The club are delighted to have agreed terms with both player and club following Sigurdsson's hugely successful loan spell last season."
