The Swansea playmaker said he does not regret a move to White Hart Lane in favour of reuniting with Brendan Rodgers.

Gylfi Sigurdsson has re-found his best form this season since returning to Swansea, following an underwhelming two-year period at Tottenham.

The Icelandic midfielder signed for the North Londoners back in the summer of 2012, but also was heavily pursued by Liverpool at the time.

With Sigurdsson working with Brendan Rodgers at Swansea, there seemed to be a natural link for the star to head to Merseyside, but a switch did not materialise.

Despite the fact that the Scandinavian playmaker found consistent first-team football hard to come by at Tottenham, he has stated that he has no regrets from his time at Spurs and does not think about why he didn’t join the Reds.

“I always say I enjoyed my time at Spurs and I improved as a player so I don't look back and think "what if?”,” The Daily Mail quote Sigurdsson as saying.

“I played with some really good players and I'm in a good team now and really enjoying my football.

“With the Brendan (Rodgers) link in the press it seemed it was more likely I'd go there but Tottenham showed a lot of interest in me and at that time they had players like Gareth Bale and things looked really good.

“Obviously there have been plenty of changes over the past two years and new faces have been brought in but I will always remember my time as a positive one.”

The 25-year-old scored against his former club Tottenham in midweek, netting a consolation in a 3-2 defeat for Swansea at White Hart Lane.

The excellent midfielder has created eight assists this season for Swansea, with only Cesc Fabregas tallying more.

Despite not starring for Tottenham, some Spurs fans feel that the Icelander was not given enough time on the pitch to prove himself in North London.
