Swansea City have had a bid rejected by Hoffenheim for loanee Gylfi Sigurdsson.

Manager Brendan Rodgers is quickly making a move to make the 22 year-old’s stay at the Liberty Stadium permanent, but he faces competition for his services from a number of other interested Premier League sides.

Hoffenheim manager Markus Babbel says the Swans would need to significantly increase their offer if they want to buy the midfielder:

‘The offer was unacceptable and far too low.’

‘I currently expect he will return after the summer break to us.’


Swansea City’s opponents on Sunday – Manchester United have been linked with showing an interest in the player. It’s been reported that their manager Sir Alex Ferguson watched the 4-4 home draw against Wolves to cast an eye on the player, rather than watching their next opponents in action.
