​Swansea may have to sell Everton, Leicester target Sigurdsson says Swans boss Clement

Swansea City boss Paul Clement has conceded that the club may have to part with Gylfi Sigurdsson this summer.

In an attempt to stave off suitors, Swansea City have slapped a whopping £50million price tag on Sigurdsson but manager Paul Clement has now gone on to begrudgingly admit that the Swans are resigned to losing their star this summer.

Clement was quoted saying by the Mirror: "I have made it very clear I want him to stay here, and the fans and owners want that. But ultimately, there's a business side to football as well.

"He's a player, at the moment, that we're not sure is going to be here at the start of the season. We had that situation with Jack Cork.

"There was no thought of moving Jack on but it got to a point when Burnley came in with a really good offer. That might end up being the case with Gylfi. We don't know yet."
