Iceland international has told his club Hoffenheim that he does not want to return to the Bundesliga
Gylfi Sigurdsson has insisted on a summer move to the Premier League.
The midfielder has been a revelation since his loan switch to Swansea City from Hoffenheim in January, scoring eight goals in his last 13 league games.
In-demand Sigurdsson has already been linked with a £10million transfer to Manchester United. And that interest intensified after United boss Sir Alex Ferguson watched Swansea’s 4-4 draw with Wolves on Saturday.
Now the Iceland international, 22, has told his parent club he does not want to return to Germany’s Bundesliga next season. Sigurdsson insisted: “My thoughts on my future haven’t changed.
“I’ve told them what I want to do next season and that’s to play in the Premier League. Hopefully things can get sorted in the summer.
“I have seen all the talk but I’m not worried about it.
“I’m just focused on the next game and I hope it can be a good one.”
He could definitely do a job in the United midfield. Scholes and Carrick have been great this season, but as they get older the team needs fresh legs to compete with the likes of City, Chelsea and Arsenal. Since his loan move to Swansea, the 22 year old has proved he has what it take to play at the top level in England.
