Swans await Hoffenheim call
Swansea have seen a bid for loan star Gylfi Sigurdsson rejected, but Hoffenheim have given the Swans first refusal on the player.
Sigurdsson has made a big impact since his loan switch to the Liberty Stadium in January and the Swans are eager to secure his services on a permanent basis. It has been reported that Swansea have seen an initial bid turned down by Bundesliga side Hoffenheim, who are though to value the Iceland international at around £10million following his seven goals since his switch to Swansea, but chairman Huw Jenkins remains relaxed over negotiations and insists the Swans have first refusal on Sigurdsson. "At this stage what's important is Hoffenheim's views on what Gylfi Sigurdsson does next season," the Swansea chairman told the South Wales Evening Post. "Whether they want to sell is Hoffenheim's decision, not ours. "We have got to wait until they tell us they are prepared to sell Gylfi before we can make a move. "It's difficult to say when that might happen because they have had a few changes in personnel behind the scenes over there. "But there is no rush at our end and the agreement we do have is that they will keep us informed of what they decide to do. "They have told us that we will be the first to know what's happening with Gylfi."
