The odds for Gylfi Sigurdsson to return to Tottenham this summer were cut from 22/1 at the start of Tuesday down to 5/4 by lunchtime, according to Sky Bet.

Everton remain favourites to sign the Icelandic international, who has been heavily linked with a move away from Swansea City.

Spurs sold Sigurdsson to Swansea three years ago when the attacking midfielder was seemingly deemed surplus to requirements by newly appointment manager Mauricio Pochettino.

But the Argentine has since praised the 27-year-old’s ability, and a return to Tottenham doesn’t appear to be ruled out.

Funnily enough, Spurs signed Sigurdsson five years ago today (Tuesday). The club’s Twitter account posted a video showcasing some of his best goals to mark the occasion — perhaps that’s why his odds of rejoining have been cut, which would be a tad bizarre.



  1. Your report is wrong.

    Recently Pochettino gave an interview where he said that he would have liked to have worked with Sigurdsson but the deal to sell him had already been signed by the time he, Pochettino, joined Spurs. So he never actually deemed him surplus to requirements.
