Liverpool Transfer Rumours: Sigurdsson Delays £7m Reds Move

By on June 13, 2012

Gylfi Sigurdsson

Midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson has delayed completing his proposed £7m move to Liverpool from Hoffenheim so he can explain himself to the new Swansea manager, according to the Mirror.

The Icelandic midfielder spent a hugely successful six months on loan at Swansea during the second half of last season, scoring 7 goals in 18 appearances for the club.

He was expected to make that move permanent this summer but the transfer collapsed when Brendan Rodgers left his post as Swansea manager to take up the reigns at Liverpool.

The Mirror claim that the 22-year-old will now follow Rodgers to Anfield and complete a £7m move from Hoffenheim, but not before he’s explained his decision to the new Swansea boss – who is yet to be named.

However, Michael Laudrup is the favourite to land the job and could be in place by next week, at which point Sigurdsson is keen to meet with the new manager as well as club chairman Huw Jenkins to explain the situation.

So Liverpool fans will have to wait a little longer before Rodgers can officially announce his first signing at Anfield.

    I am excited by this signing. It may not be a marquee name but for under £7m it’s great business.

    He will add some quality and flair to our attack is he’s better than most of the attacking options in the squad.

    Absolutely gutted he has not signed for us after agreeing personal terms, you have a great Manager and a great little midfielder…given time BR will get you to where you used to be, providing he buys players that want to play and not star names there for the money!

    Gylfi would be better off signing for Swansea if he really wants more game time, he would be a regular first at scfc as opposed to an also ran at l/pool.

    swansea can match the tranfer fee, but also he had also agreed terms with Swansea, and he i loved there.

      i feel its comical that your saying that brendan needs to watch his back. Take a look around brendan got you were you are now. Gylf was not a swansea player and so is free to do what the hell he wants. And i hardly call signing gylfi from hoffenheim and yes hoffenheim not swansea a huge dismantle Well not the year but once the 12 months are up i bet joe allen will no longer be a swan.

    What flair. This guy has zero flair. Go striker of the ball. Decent passing range. Besides his strike of the ball he is average
