Paul Clement admits he is "not sure" whether Gylfi Sigurdsson will remain a Swansea player next season.
The Iceland international played an instrumental part in securing the Swans' Premier League survival last season by providing nine goals and 13 assists to be named the club's Player of the Year for the second campaign running.
The 27-year-old's form has led to reported interest from Everton and Leicester but Clement, who on Monday insisted Sigurdsson would only leave if the club's valuation of £50m is met, says no offers have yet been made but revealed he does not know whether the former Tottenham man will remain at Liberty Stadium.
Speaking after his side's surprise 1-0 pre-season defeat to Barnet, Clements told Sky Sports News HQ: "I know there is a lot of speculation and clubs that are strongly interested in him, but there's nothing more than that at the moment.
"We have not rejected anything and Gylfi has not come to us and said 'I want to leave'.
"He is a player here at the moment. We are not sure whether he is going to be here for this season. If another club comes up with the right valuation, according to us, then it would be a different matter possibly."
Praising Sigurdsson's work ethic, he added: "Gylfi is always very professional. The first day he came back in last week he was right at the top of the running statistics.
"He always puts a shift in. He is very professional. He is a quiet man, he gets on with his job and I always look forward to working with him every day."
