Sigurdsson happy at Swansea

New Straits Times - - Sport -

LON­DON: Swansea mid­fielder Gylfi Sigurdsson is happy at the Premier League club and is not look­ing to leave un­less the Welsh side want to sell him.

Sigurdsson’s nine goals and 13 as­sists have been cru­cial for Swansea’s sur­vival in the top flight this sea­son and the Ice­land in­ter­na­tional won the club’s Player of the Year award for the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive sea­son on Wed­nes­day.

The 27-year-old signed a new con­tract in Au­gust to keep him at Swansea un­til 2020 but me­dia re­ports have linked him with league ri­vals Ever­ton and West Ham United in re­cent weeks.

“I signed a new con­tract in the sum­mer and I’ve got three years left,” Sigurdsson told Bri­tish me­dia.

“So it’s down to the club if they want to sell me. But I was very happy when I was on loan here and then again in the last three years.

“I’m not try­ing to leave, I’m not des­per­ate to go or any­thing. It (spec­u­la­tion) doesn’t bother me what peo­ple are talk­ing about.”

Swansea se­cured safety with a 2-0 win over rel­e­gated Sun­der­land last Satur­day and will host West Bromwich Al­bion to­mor­row. Reuters
