Gylfi Sigurdsson has told Icelandic newspaper MorgunblaĆ°iĆ° that he does not expect to stay at Swansea City next season.

The 22 year-old midfielder says he would have liked to continue his career at the Liberty Stadium as he enjoyed it, but admits he’s unsure where his future lies due to Brendan Rodgers’ move to Liverpool. He also says a move to Swansea City is unlikely now due to him not knowing who the manager will be, as they still seek a replacement for the Irishman.

Sigurdsson said:

”It’s just unclear at this moment where I come to a play. I’d like to play on with Swansea since I was really happy there, but after Brendan Rodgers left the club for Liverpool changed the situation for it,”

He also says he’d consider a move to Liverpool but he hasn’t talked to Rodgers about a move to Anfield.

”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 and hopefully is that I continue to play in that division.

I expect not to stay at Swansea as the uncertainty going on there and not clear who is boss,”


In response to a question asking if he had talks with Rodgers about joining him at Liverpool, Sigurdsson added:

”No, but I got in touch with him when he was appointed Liverpool manager. I wish him congratulations and thanked him for a great time at Swansea,”.
