Gylfi Sigurdsson has put his transfer to Swansea City on ice after Swans boss Brendan Rodgers signed a three-year deal with Liverpool.
The Icelandic playmaker, who scored 7 times in 18 games while on loan at The Liberty Stadium last season, had been due to complete a £6.8 million move from parent club Hoffenheim by the end of the week.
The 22-year-old will now delay his decision until he knows who Swansea’s next boss is. Sigurdsson had agreed terms with the Welsh club but is yet to complete a medical and could therefore pull out of any permanent deal if another offer were to alert his interest.
The decision will dismay Swansea fans and lead to speculation that Rodgers may attempt to highjack the deal by bringing Sigurdsson with him to Anfield as a long-term successor to Steven Gerrard.
Rodgers’ appointment is also likely to end speculation linking with Swansea with Tottenham Hotspur pair Steven Caulker and Giovani dos Santos, while he is expected to raid his former employer for midfielder Joe Allen and defender Ashley Williams.
