Welsh club understood to have agreed fee with Hoffenheim

Sky Sports understands Swansea have agreed a deal with Hoffenheim to sign Icelandic midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson on a permanent basis. Sigurdsson joined the Swans on loan in January after falling down the pecking order at Hoffenheim and quickly slotted into Brendan Rodgers' side. He played a key role in an impressive campaign for the Welsh club, but it was always unclear whether Hoffenheim would call him back this summer after a managerial change saw Markus Babbel replace Holger Stanislawski. However, it now looks as though Swansea will be able to keep hold of Sigurdsson as they are believed to have agreed a fee with Hoffenheim. It is thought the two clubs have struck a deal for the Swans to buy the 22-year-old for a fee in the region of £7million, which would be a new club record. Sigurdsson is now set to discuss terms with Swansea and the club will be hoping to confirm him as their first signing of the summer.
