BBC pundit and former Tottenham Hotspur star believes Spurs were too quick to let Gylfi Sigurdsson go

Swansea Liberty Stadium

The Icelandic international is currently in great form for Swansea City.

If Swansea City do stay up this season then Gylfi Sigurdsson will rightly take a lot of credit.

The Icelandic international has been one of their best players this season, His recent form has been fantastic. Since the turn of the year he has played 10 times for Swansea and has scored six goals.

His most recent goal came against Norwich City in a crucial Premier League relegation six-pointer yesterday afternoon.

Sigurdsson is of course in his second spell at Swansea. After a previous stint on loan at the club he headed to Tottenham Hotspur.

His time at Spurs was mixed. He spent two seasons at the club and in his first campaign at Spurs played 50 times and scored seven goals.

But his first-team opportunities were often limited at Spurs and after two seasons he was allowed to leave.

Based on his current form one former Tottenham player and current BBC pundit. Garth Crooks, who played for Spurs from 1980 until 1985, told the BBC yesterday:

"Whenever I've seen Gylfi Sigurdsson play for Swansea, he's the player who stands out as pure quality. A top-class goal from him there.

"Sometimes you have to wonder if Tottenham were a bit quick in letting him go..."

Sigurdsson, who left Spurs as part of a deal that saw Ben Davies arrive at the club, is continuing to prove himself a real talent.

At the moment, with Spurs flying so high, it is unlikely anyone at the club is desperately missing the Icelandic international.

Swansea fans however will just hope that he continues his great form in their relegation fight.
