Swansea boss Rodgers determined to keep hold of Sigurdsson, Sinclair

Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers is determined to keep hold of attacking pair Scott Sinclair and Gylfi Sigurdsson.

After his brace helped Swansea to a 3-0 win at Fulham, Rodgers underlined his determination to land Sigurdsson on a permanent deal.

"We have spoken to his agent and I've made the chairman aware of my feelings but, ultimately, it's whether Hoffenheim want to sell him," he said.

"We needed a goal-scoring midfielder and he has fitted in well with this group of players."

Likewise, Rodgers is hoping that winger Sinclair will commit his future to the club and sign a new deal.

"There have been initial discussions," he said.

"He's very happy here. It's not been put on the back-burner.

"He knows he's in a great place to develop so, hopefully, we can agree a new deal."
