Everton boss Ronald Koeman says that he is still hopeful of signing Gylfi Sigurdsson from Swansea this month, despite the saga dragging on for what feels like forever.
The Blues and Sigurdsson have been said to be “close” to a deal, with fans camping out at City Centre hotels trying to get a glimpse of the Icelander should he sign for Everton.
And Everton manager Koeman said the deal is still close, but not quite done.
Koeman said, “I heard some rumours it has broke down. That is not the case, we are still in negotiations.
“It is always a game between the selling club and buying club, but we are close and let’s hope we get an agreement as soon as possible.
“Soon is okay, I spoke about really soon and it was last weekend. Let’s wait.”
