Gylfi Sigurdsson

Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Icelandic international midfielder who plays for Everton. Born on September 8, 1989, Sigurdsson played at FH Hafnarfjorour and the Breidablik academy in his homeland as a junior. He moved to Reading in July 2005 and took in loan spells at Shrewsbury Town and Crewe Alexandra. A goal-scoring midfield technician with a knack for spectacular set-piece strikes, Hoffenheim took Sigurdsson to the Bundesliga for £6.5million in August 2010.

In January 2012 he returned to English football, linking up with former Reading boss Brendan Rodgers at Swansea City. That summer, Tottenham Hotspur paid £8million to take him to North London but Sigurdsson was never a regular and rejoined the Swans in 2014. After three more seasons at the Liberty Stadium, Sigurdsson signed for Everton for a reported £45million.

Sigurdsson is a full Icelandic international and played every minute of his country’s miraculous run to the quarter-finals of the 2016 UEFA European Championships.
