Gylfi Sigurdsson helped Swansea avoid the drop last season

Sigurdsson did play in Wednesday's pre-season loss against Barnet, and even captained the side in the second half, as he has done before in the Premier League.

Swansea City midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson will miss the Premier League club's pre-season tour in the United States due to the uncertainty surrounding his future at the club with media reports linking him to a move away from Liberty Stadium.

Swansea boss Paul Clement admitted after his side's loss against Barnet that the "business side" of the game means he could lose his prized asset.

The Telegraph are reporting today Everton are confident in securing a deal.

"There is speculation, there are a couple of clubs strongly interested in him, but it's nothing more than that at the moment", said Clement.

Swansea are reportedly holding out for £50m but now the club have confirmed that the ongoing transfer speculation means Sigurdsson will be staying in south Wales rather than travelling to the US for their pre-season tour, as he is not in the "right frame of mind".
