Report: Sigurdsson could be set for switch after Palace bid accepted

Gylfi Sigurddson

An offer from Crystal Palace for versatile attacking midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson has reportedly been accepted by Spurs.

The Pochettino clear out seems like it may be about to gather pace at White Hart Lane, with the Daily Mirror reporting that a bid from Crystal Palace for Icelandic midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson has been accepted by the North Londoners.

The paper mention a figure of £8 million as being agreed between the two clubs, though the player will have to decide if he is to move south of the river.

Sigurdsson's future has been much talked about in recent weeks, with certain reports stating that he may be involved in transfer talks with his former club Swansea, once more eager on the player. With Spurs said to be pursuing the likes of Wilfried Bony, Ben Davies and Michel Vorm it was possible the 25-year-old would be a valuable commodity in any incomings from Liberty Stadium.

It would be a little surprising if Mauricio Pochettino was to approve of the sale of the versatile former Reading man, with Sigurdsson impressing off the bench in Tottenham's meeting with the Argentine's previous club Southampton in March, scoring a superb last minute goal to win the three points.

Other than that, the Icelandic international enjoyed a slightly frustrating season, making 35 appearances and scoring 6 goals, but only managing to start 14 times. He did manage to score the club's goal of the season though, with a wonderful piece of skill and shot from 30 yards against Hull City in the League Cup.

He would be a superb addition to Tony Pullis' impressive Crystal Palace side, especially for a similar fee as to what Spurs paid for Sigurdsson when they signed him from Hoffenheim in 2012.

The next few days will prove whether there is any substance to the Mirror's reports.
