If Sig don’t sign, he’s Hoff home
CHAIRMAN Huw Jenkins expects Swansea to face a battle to hold on to star midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson when his loan deal comes to an end this summer.
The Icelander has been a revelation since joining them from Hoffenheim in January, scoring seven goals in 15 appearances.
Sigurdsson, who had worked with Swans boss Brendan Rodgers at Reading, has said he would be happy to stay but Jenkins knows persuading the German club to sell the 22-year-old is another matter.
He said: “He’s done a great job for us and is still only young. Our aim is to keep our best players.
“When you take a player on loan, control is out of your hands and Hoffenheim wouldn’t commit to do a deal before we took him, which we would have wanted.”
Jenkins is also hoping Tottenham will sanction a loan deal for defender Stephen Caulker.
