Gylfi Sigurdsson has departed White Hart Lane to make a return at Swansea City.
Sigurdsson joins the Swans on a four-year deal after he passed a medical on Tuesday. The transfer fee involved has not been disclosed. This will be Sigurdsson’s second spell at the Liberty Stadium. He scored 7 goals in 18 games during a successful loan spell during the 2011/12 season, which was Swansea’s debut Premier League season. The club finished in a respectable 11th place.
The 24-year old Icelandic midfielder joined Spurs in July of 2012. Sigurdsson went close to joining Swansea on a permanent deal before joining Spurs, but the deal collapsed once then Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers departed for Liverpool. Spurs paid an estimated fee of £8.8m for Sigurdsson to Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim.
Sigurdsson made 83 appearances for Tottenham, scoring 13 goals and providing 9 assists.
