Cash from Sigurdsson's sale can put Swansea on a path to fixing issues

Paul Clement says he won't comment on incoming players at Swansea until Gylfi Sigurdsson's future is resolved.
Swansea manager Paul Clement says Gylfi Sigurdsson is not in his plans and that he wants his situation resolved quickly.

And so the Gylfi Sigurdsson saga finally ends. While Swansea have lost their all-time Premier League goals and assists leader, they have recouped a club-record £45 million fee, which could fix several seasons of subpar recruitment at a stroke. How Swansea deal with the departure of their star man and how they reinvest the money will now play a huge role in determining the club's future.

This is Swansea's "Gareth Bale money", equivalent (adjusting for stature) to the time Spurs sold their...

Is Sigurdsson worth £50m? Everton not perturbed by Swansea price

The ESPN FC crew bring you all the latest transfer talk from the Premier League.
The ESPN FC crew bring you all the latest transfer talk from the Premier League.

Is Swansea City midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson worth £50 million? Swansea seem to think so, and Everton appear ready to pay something close to that, having had a previous £40m bid rebuffed.

Swansea's logic for a price almost £20m higher than what James Rodriguez might cost Bayern Munich is simple.

Son Heung-Min, Ki Sung-Yeung under World Cup cloud for South Korea

Son Heung-Min receives medical treatment during South Korea's World Cup qualifying match against Qatar.
Son Heung-Min underwent surgery after breaking his forearm in South Korea's World Cup qualifier against Qatar on June 13.

These are troubled times for South Korea. Son Heung-Min and Ki Sung-Yeung are not only in danger of missing the start of the new Premier League season, but could be absent, or short of fitness, for do-or-die 2018 AFC World Cup qualifiers against Iran and Uzbekistan, starting next month.

June's loss to Qatar was seismic for a number of reasons. For one, it resulted in Son breaking his arm. The forward had a fine season for Tottenham Hotspur, scoring 21 goals in all competitions.

Few Asians have had...

Rating out of 10: 3


Swansea's five-game unbeaten streak to end the season, which saw them switch places with Hull, escape relegation and finish 15th overall. They hit a run of form at exactly the right time while their relegation...
