Premier League News Links: Tottenham Beats Liverpool To Sign Gylfi Sigurdsson

Tottenham Hotspur today announced the signing of attacking midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson from Hoffenheim. The Icelandic creative midfielder, who played at Swansea last season on loan, was close to signing a permanent deal with Swansea and then Liverpool, but presumably Spurs was willing to offer more than Brendan Rodgers’ current and previous clubs.

The signing of Sigurdsson is as sure a sign of any that Tottenham is expected to lose Luka Modric this summer to Real Madrid or another high-profile club.
