​Everton target Sigurdsson passes medical ahead of transfer

Everton are set to announce the signing of Swansea City midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson for a fee believed to be about £45m.

The 27-year old passed a medical at the club earlier on Wednesday, manager Ronald Koeman told a news conference.

Sigurdsson will be a record signing for Everton, who paid £31.8m to Chelsea for striker Romelu Lukaku in 2014.
