Gylfi Sigurdsson could return to Tottenham in shock £25million move

But Clement oversaw a recovery which took 26 points from 18 games and secured Swansea's safety on the penultimate Premier League weekend.

"Otherwise he is better staying here, being a key player and building something around moving this club forward".

After a turbulent season which threatened relegation Swansea midfielder Gylfi Sigurðsson insists he is "not trying to leave or wants to leave" the Swans when the summer transfer window opens in July.

Swansea City boss Paul Clement has pleaded with Gylfi Sigurdsson to remain at the Liberty Stadium despite interest from Everton and says the Icelandic worldwide should try and avoid getting into a similar situation he found himself in at Tottenham.

The 27-year-old former Reading and 1899 Hoffenheim man has scored nine goals and provided 13 assists in 37 Premier League appearances for the Swans this season.

"Even though Barkley is entering the final year of his contract, Everton should still expect to get £25million for him". I am not necessarily talking about Gylfi, but do they want to be a smaller fish in a big pond or a big fish in a small pond?

The Iceland midfielder's excellent form this season has seen him linked with clubs including Everton, but Sigurdsson says he is happy at Swansea.

"I think it'll continue to be like that because whatever happens, happens".

Sigurdsson won the players' player of the year, supporters' player of the year and away player of the year as he cleaned up once again at the end-of-season awards dinner.

It has been reported that Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino wants to re-sign Sigurdsson as he believes that the Iceland worldwide midfielder is a better and cheaper alternative to Everton star Ross Barkley. A player of Sigurdsson's vast quality should be fighting near the top of the table rather than the bottom, which he presumably would have more chance of doing at Everton, and Clement knows the former Tottenham star has a decision to make. Other clubs including Everton and West Ham are said to be pursuing the player.
