Gylfi Sigurdsson joins Tottenham

Tottenham have beaten Liverpool to the signing of Hoffenheim midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson, who had a spell on loan at Swansea last season. The 22-year-old Iceland international is the first recruit for new Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas in a deal reported to be worth £8m. Sigurdsson was linked with a move to join former Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool. He scored seven times in 19 games on loan under Rodgers at Swansea.
