Swansea will only sell Sigurdsson for £50m: Clement

By Samuel Lovett

Paul Clement has insisted that Gylfi Sigurdsson will only leave Swansea if the club's sizeable valuation is met. It was reported on Monday that Swansea had put a £50m price tag on Sigurdsson amid strong interest from Everton and Leicester.

Sigurdsson is set to join Swansea's pre-season tour to the United States when the squad depart tomorrow, and head coach Clement says he is planning for the Icelandic playmaker to be at the club when their Premier League season kicks off on August 12.

"He is training hard and he is at the top of all the statistics physically," Clement said.

"I am planning for him to be here, but there is clearly some very strong interest in him. We will have to see what happens.

"He has three years on his contract and if any business is going to be done, it will be done on the terms we want."
