Beating Everton 1-0 on Saturday, Swansea are now one step closer to avoiding relegation, pushing Hull City into the bottom three after their 2-0 loss to already relegated Sunderland.
While the Swans’ season hasn’t exactly gone to plan, now on their third manager since the start of the campaign, Paul Clement has managed to reinvigorate them somewhat, as well as getting the best out of one of their key players, Gylfi Sigurdsson.
The Iceland international has scored nine goals and picked up 12 assists this season in 36 games, including a vital goal against Manchester United last week, earning his side a valuable point in the process.
Such performances have obviously led to a lot of speculation about his future beyond this season, but the 27-year-old isn’t thinking about any of that, as he explained to SFR Sport over the weekend.
He said: “Of course it’s nice to hear those things, but I’m only focused on this season and just trying to help the team stay in the league. Whatever happens at the end of the season, hopefully it’ll be us staying up, but you never know what happens in the future.
“I still have there years left on my contract with Swansea, so I’m fully focused on the end of this season.”
The ‘you never know what can happen’ line is a favourite of footballers, who are fully aware they are always one big bid away from a transfer, but it seems Sigurdsson is settled in Wales.
Having already played for a ‘bigger’ side at Tottenham, the Icelandic attacking midfielder doesn’t appear in any rush to leave the Liberty Stadium if they can stay in the Premier League beyond this season.
As he said, though, you never know what can happen…
