Gylfi Sigurdsson signs four-year Swansea City contract
Swansea City midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson has signed a new four-year contract.
Iceland international Sigurdsson, 26, had been linked with a £25 million move to Everton this summer but has committed his future to Swansea.
"Delighted to have signed a new 4 year deal with @swansofficial," he wrote on Instagram. "Looking forward to the new season!"
He added on the club's official website: "I am very happy. It's a place I like to live and play football in, so I'm very happy to have a new four-year contract. It says a lot about what the club think of me.
"The main reason is that I'm very happy playing football here. I feel very good and it's a great team with a great bunch of lads.
"With the training ground extension being finished at Fairwood and the facility in Landore, the club is moving in the right direction and it's something I want to be a part of.
"At the end of last season we were getting better and where we should be. We were winning games, which was a lot better than the first half of last year.
"We've been discussing the contract for a long period of time. It slowed down a little with the takeover, so it took longer than expected.
"We had the Euros as well, of course, so I was away for five or six weeks, so it's nice that it's finally done and I can concentrate on football and get ready for the season."
Sigurdsson joined Swansea on a permanent deal in 2014 after a two-year spell with Tottenham Hotspur, having previously spent time on loan at the Liberty Stadium in 2012.
He scored 11 goals in 36 appearances for Swansea last season.
