Swansea chairman Jenkins confident Sigurdsson deal will happen

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins is confident they have a deal for winger Gylfi Sigurdsson.

Jenkins insisted yesterday that he was still hopeful that a move for Gylfi Sigurdsson can be completed.

The £6.8million move was thought to be off after Brendan Rodgers' departure, but Jenkins, who has agreed personal terms with the Hoffenheim midfielder, is confident he will complete a medical at the club next week.

He said: "We have agreed a fee and personal terms but the problem is he has gone away to Europe on holiday and that has delayed the finalising of it.

"We are hopeful of getting things moving next week, hopefully we can tie that up."
