Swansea City boss Paul Clement has confirmed talks are ongoing with another club over the possible transfer of playmaker Gylfi Sigurdsson.
Everton have had two bids of £40m-plus rejected by Everton for the Iceland international, as 360Nobs earlier reported
Clement is adamant the Swans will not leave it too late in the window to complete their transfer business, as they look to ensure they are not battling at the wrong end of the Premier League table as they were last season, when they finished 15th.
“Talks are ongoing between our club and another club, in particular. But as we stand, he is still a Swansea City player,” Clement said of Sigurdsson on Sky Sports News. “It’s possible he could be here, it’s possible he could move. We don’t know yet.
“This won’t go until the end of the window, we won’t allow that to happen. Business needs to be done, otherwise the player needs to stay here. We are not going to get into a situation where the player potentially goes, we have funds available, but there’s no time to do any deals. We end up weaker and there’s no way that’s going to happen.”
