Iceland’s hero defender Ragnar Sigurdsson has briefly commented on his future today, amid links with Premier League clubs Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City.

The Guardian reported earlier this week that both Spurs and the Premier League champions Leicester were keen on the player, who is valued by his Russian club FC Krasnodar at around £4.1 million.

Speaking to Expressen the defender admitted he had briefly spoken to his agent, who happens to be former Blackburn Rovers striker Martin Dahlin, but that his sole focus currently was on the European Championships:

“I think a lot of this team will get a transfer.

“Yes (I spoke with my agent), but only for five minutes.

"(I'm) staying calm, there is nothing that is clear or concrete yet. Focus on the next game instead.

“It is important to keep my feet on the ground.”

Sigurdsson has been one of the stars for Iceland in their progress to the quarter finals of the Euros this summer. He was man-of-the-match in the recent 2-1 win over England, a game in which he scored their equalising goal.

Tottenham need defensive reinforcements with Eric Dier’s move into midfield and Jan Vertonghen’s injury proneness – especially with a Champions League campaign to come.

Leicester are in a similar position, with strengthening being done throughout the team ahead of a potential title defence and European run.

But for now, Sigurdsson’s only thoughts are on defeating France and bringing more glory to his small island nation.
