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.
