Swansea City have agreed a fee with Hoffenheim for the signing of midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson, who has agreed personal with the Premier League club.

Sigurdsson, 22, spent the second half of the season on loan at Swansea from Hoffenheim, impressing at the Liberty Stadium as he scored seven times in 18 Premier League matches.

It was confirmed on Monday that a fee of £6.8 million has been agreed between Swansea and their Bundesliga counterparts while personal terms have also been settled.

"Swansea City can today confirm a transfer fee and personal terms have been agreed for Hoffenheim midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson," a statement read on the club's official website.

"A club record offer of £6.8million has been accepted by the German club, and the 22-year-old is expected in Swansea later this week to undergo a medical before the move is confirmed.

"The club are delighted to have agreed terms with both player and club following Sigurdsson's hugely successful loan spell last season.
