Midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson has admitted he does not expect to complete a transfer to Swansea, opening the door for Liverpool to hijack the move.

Last week Sigurdsson looked on course to finalise a permanent switch from Hoffenheim to Swansea, having impressed on loan at the Liberty Stadium towards the end of the most recent Premier League campaign.

However, Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers' decision to leave the club in order to take over at Liverpool cast doubt on the move - and Sigurdsson now seems willing to follow the Northern Irishman to Anfield.

"It's just unclear at this moment where I will play," he told mbl.is. "I'd like to play on with Swansea since I was really happy there but after Brendan Rodgers left the club for Liverpool, that changed the situation.

"I expect not to stay at Swansea because of the uncertainty going on there as it is not clear who is boss. I have said that my desire to continue playing in the Premier League and Liverpool is completely considered.

"Liverpool is a big club that has a glorious history. English Premier League is the platform that I want to be [playing on] and hopefully I will continue to play in that division."
