The saga has dragged on for most of the summer with Swansea initially valuing the 27-year-old at £50m.

Swansea City are aiming to bring in two or three more players into the club before the transfer window closes, according to manager Paul Clement.

Sigurdsson: "Hopefully I will continue to create goals and score goals for the team and contribute to the kind of success we're seeking at the Club". He was arguably one of, if not the most, important players in saving Swansea from relegation last season. Sigurdsson scored nine goals and registered 13 assists in the Premier League last season to help the Swans avoid the drop with a game to spare.

"We lost with Lukaku 25 goals and we need more players than one to get that number of goals", Everton manager Ronaldo Koeman said.

There will be great interest in how the 31-year-old, United and England's record goalscorer, fares back at his old side - and scoring the victor on Saturday in his first Premier League match since the move certainly made for a good start. Players like this should only be signed if a team has reason to believe that they are one player away from a Champions League place/league title, or if their revenue is so high that the loss they take on the player will be irrelevant. And on Wednesday, Everton finally got their man for an incredible £45 million transfer fee - by far a club record.

The United States, South Korea and Japan are approaching the issue as an alliance. Dunford's visit to China is the second of three stops in his trip to Asia.

Swansea's only senior signings this summer have been Roque Mesa from Las Palmas, Erwin Mulder from Heerenveen while Tammy Abraham has also joined on loan from Chelsea.

Supremo Huw Jenkins wants classy Scotland worldwide Armstrong to replace Gylfi Sigurdsson and hopes to agree a low fee. West Brom's Nader Chadli appears to be our top priority to come in as the Icelandic's replacement, who could be available for £20m - half of what we sold Gylfi for.

Everton's majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri has spent close to £100m so far in recruiting former favourite Wayne Rooney, Jordan Pickford, Davy Klaassen, Michael Keane, Cuco Martina and Sandro Ramirez. "I know the supporters and players would agree with that".

Clement hinted Swans might look overseas for better value-for-money recruits, despite earlier stating his preference would be to sign players proven in the Premier League.
