​Swansea reject second Everton bid for Sigurdsson

Swansea City have rejected a second bid from Everton for playmaker Gylfi Sigurdsson.

The Toffees were knocked back with their initial bid of £40m, and Sky Sports understands that their addition of £5m worth of add-ons has also be denied.

The Iceland midfielder was left off the Swans 10-day USA tour because he was not in "the right frame of mind to travel."

Swansea are believed to be holding out for a fee of £50m for their star player.

The 27-year old has been the club's talisman since he joined from Tottenham in 2014 for £6.8m, scoring 37 goals in 131 appearances.
