Swans warn over Sigurdsson deal
The owners of Swansea City have warned potential suitors that they will only part with midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson if a suitable price can be agreed.
The 27-year-old recently opted out of a pre-season tour of the United States as he felt that he was not right mentally, amid talk of interest from several other Premier League clubs.

However, with bids of around £40million believed to be on the table, Swans owners Steve Kaplan and Jason Levien have made it clear that they are in no mood to lose Sigurdsson unless their demands are fully met.
A statement released to WalesOnline read: "At this time we have not received an offer from any club which represents a fair valuation of Gylfi given his importance to our club.
"We will not be bullied or forced into a decision until a club meets our valuation of the player, no matter whether they believe they have an agreement with the player.
"Any such agreement would obviously be in contravention of Premier League legislation.
"We are disappointed Gylfi has taken the decision not to join his team-mates in America, where they are working with the coaching staff to prepare for the upcoming season.
"We have the ultimate respect for Gylfi as a person and a player and we are optimistic that he will reconsider his decision and join his team-mates."
Sigurdsson has scored 34 goals in 124 Premier League appearances for the Swans across two spells in South Wales, having also played in English football for Reading and Tottenham Hotspur.
Swansea are 1/2000 to be relegated next season, with Burnley available at 1000/1 and Crystal Palace 1000/1.
