Cape Town - Everton have agreed a £25 million transfer fee for Swansea City midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson with the club to enter into talks with the player to negotiate personal terms.

The Toffees have moved quickly to tie up a deal for the in demand midfielder and Swans double player of the year who has scored nine goals to go with 13 assists this season, The Mirror reports.

The Icelander, who has also been linked to former club Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton is rumoured to be seeking a pay rise from £80 000 a week to £120 000 as he enters into negotiations on personal terms.

Meanwhile, manager Paul Clement has made it clear that the club has no intention of off-loading their top players during the upcoming transfer window.

The Swans finished the Premier League season in 15th position thanks to the likes of Sigurdsson and Fernando Llorente.

The pair had been linked with moves to Everton and Chelsea respectively, but Clement insists Swansea don't need to sell because they have strengthened their finances by finished 15th.
