Tottenham have confirmed they profited from Gylfi Sigurdsson’s transfer from Swansea City to Everton last summer.

Sigurdsson left Spurs for Swansea in the summer of 2014 after two seasons with the London club in which he scored 13 goals.

Swansea reportedly agreed to a 10% sell-on fee, meaning Tottenham would receive 10% of whatever fee Swansea received for Sigurdsson.

After a successful spell in Wales, Everton spent £45 million to take Sigurdsson to Goodison Park at the beginning of the current campaign.

Earlier today Spurs announced record revenue amounting to £306.3 millon for the year ending June 2017.

And in the same report, the club confirmed they received Swansea’s sell-on fee for Sigurdsson.

While £4.5 million doesn’t sound like an awful lot of money in the current climate, it’s significantly more than Tottenham expected to collect when they sold Sigurdsson in 2014.

The Iceland international has scored six goals in 30 appearances this season for Everton.

Spurs also revealed Daniel Levy’s yearly salary has risen by £3.2 millon to £6 million since 2015-16.

Is the Tottenham chairman worth those wages? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.



  1. The financial results look excellent and the borrowing appears under control. This appears to be a very well run company in the middle of a business expansion. The developments of Lillywhite House and Hotspur Way look fantastic- Brazil and England both training there. Liverpool’s turnover has not been published but as they were not in the Champions League last year we may be closing in on them for revenue and Juventus possibly, we could be the 8th biggest club in the world – what a transformation since the Sugar days. The increased season ticket waiting list at the beginning of this season exceeded the new stadium’s capacity and with the development of the team under Poch it looks like the plans that Levy put in place years ago – facing many short-termist complaints from some fans. 6M for Levy looks a snip!

    • If anyone should get 6m it should be Poch Levy has appointed so many managers he had to get a good one evenyually.Not hard to run the Spurs to be honest but do what Poch has done is fantastic

  2. Levy Is a good chairman no doubt he had a long frustrated plan in place. Now what needs to happen is to pay the players a good wage but not over the top. Sell toby and rose as they are asking for to much money considering that toby is 29 with no sell on value in the long run. Rose is always injured. We need to keep Eric lamella he can run all day what is he on. Keep this bunch of players and add just a striker get rid of lorente. Need another left back, a centre back, and another holding midfielder. Then blood a few youth players like harry winks.

  3. His transfer dealings alone have saved us more than £6m.
    Which Premier League chairman would you rather have?
