Sigurdsson keen to extend Swans stay

Swansea midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson does not want to return to Hoffenheim in the summer if it means he is denied regular first-team football.

The Iceland international scored both goals in the 2-0 weekend win over Wigan to take his tally to three in eight matches since arriving on loan in January. And while he insists he is focusing on football rather than his future, he admits a return to Germany may not be in his best interests.

"I just want to play football. I'm very happy here at the moment and hopefully things will get sorted in the summer," the 22-year-old told the South Wales Evening Post.

"I don't know what's going to happen. I'm concentrating on Swansea City and helping them stay in the league.

"This is what I've dreamed of since (I was) a little kid. I've got my chance now and hopefully I can keep on doing well.

"You're not going to turn down Premier League football when you're out of the side at Hoffenheim.

"It's not up to me because I've got another two seasons at Hoffenheim but I don't want to sit on the bench there any longer.

"They were in contact a couple of weeks ago. I spoke to the manager briefly and he was going to speak to me again later this month."
