Gylfi Sigurdsson has hinted at a move to Liverpool after revealing he won’t be signing for Swansea on a permanent basis this summer.
Sigurdsson joined the Swans on loan in January and spent a hugely successful five months at the Liberty Stadium, scoring seven goals in his eighteen appearances for the club.
The Hoffenheim midfielder was expected to make his move permanent this summer after Swansea agreed a fee with the German’s and all that remained was for the player to put pen-to-paper on his contract. However, those plans have been shelved after Brendan Rodgers left the club, and the 22-year-old has hinted he would like to follow his former boss to Liverpool.
Quoted by Sky Sports News, Sigurdsson confirmed he won’t be joining Swansea after Rodgers departure before taking time to praise Liverpool, calling them a ‘great club’:
“It’s just unclear at this moment where I will play, I’d like to play on with Swansea since I was really happy there.
“But after Brendan Rodgers left the club for Liverpool, it changed the situation.”
“I have said that my desire is to continue playing in the Premier League and Liverpool is completely considered.
“Liverpool is a big club that has a glorious history. The English Premier League is the platform that I want to be on and hopefully I continue to play in that division.
“I expect not to stay at Swansea as the uncertainty going on there and it is not clear who is the boss.”
