Swansea City midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson has signed a new four-year contract to keep him at the Liberty Stadium until 2020, the club confirmed on their website.

In a statement they said that a number of other clubs had shown interest in the Icelandic midfielder, with the Daily Telegraph reporting Everton's interest in a £25 million deal just under a fortnight ago.

Despite the fee offered, it appears that Swansea value their player higher and the 26-year-old seems pretty content with life in South Wales.

This news is likely to please Swansea fans who clearly feel he is a key part of their side.

Last season Sigurdsson found the net on 11 occasions in the Premier League and appeared in all but two of their league games.

Fans seem pretty pleased with the business side of the deal while some are very relieved and happy that he will be donning their colours beyond this transfer window at the very least, while some are even prepared to hand him the captaincy.
