Swansea threaten Everton over Sigurdsson pursuit
Swansea have threatened to go to the Premier League over Everton’s pursuit of Gylfi Sigurdsson.
Everton want to sign Sigurdsson but have been put off by Swansea’s £50million valuation.
The Toffees are said to have an agreement already in place with the player regarding a deal.
But Swansea have dismissed this and have warned they will make an official complaint to the league if Everton continue their interest without meeting the player’s valuation.
A Swansea statement read: “We are disappointed Gylfi has taken the decision not to join his team-mates in America (for pre-season) where they are working with the coaching staff to prepare for the upcoming season.
“At this time we have not received an offer from any club which represents a fair valuation of Gylfi given his importance to our club.
“As we have stated, we will not be bullied or forced into a decision until a club meets our valuation of the player, no matter whether they believe they have an agreement with the player.
“Any such agreement would obviously be in contravention of Premier League legislation.
“We have the ultimate respect for Gylfi as a person and a player and we are optimistic that he will reconsider his decision and join his team-mates.”
