Sigurdsson passes medical at Everton

Gylfi Sigurdsson has passed his medical this morning, edging closer to completing his move from Swansea to Everton.

The transfer fee is believed to be around £45m, which would be a record fee for Everton.

Everton boss, Ronald Koeman, confirmed the progress of the icelandic international's medical at a press conference this afternoon.

He said: "The latest is that he had his medical this morning and what I heard from the doctor was that there was no problem with that," Koeman said. I don't know if still he needs to sign. But I saw him in the blue".

Defeat for Swansea despite two goals at Goodison

A first half goal from Wilfried Bony and another on the 90th minute from Ashley Williams were not enough for Swansea City as their second trip to Goodison Park this season ended in defeat.

Garry Monk's men were knocked out of the FA Cup at the same venue last month and it was Everton who once again took the win.

Bony's first half goal put the Swans back into contention after Leighton Baines put the home side ahead with a penalty in the 20th minute.

But second half goals from Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley sealed the win for Roberto Martinez's team, before Williams secured a consolation goal for the Welsh side.

Swansea City will be looking for points against Everton today, after a home defeat to fellow strugglers West Brom last weekend pulled them deeper into relegation trouble.

It's the Swans' second trip to Goodison Park this season, after they were knocked out of the FA Cup in a 3-1 defeat last month.

Boss Gary Monk says he'll be taking an almost fully fit squad, which could be a much needed boost to their trip.

Swansea are looking nervously over their shoulders. At the moment, they're ahead of 18th placed Sunderland but their cup exploits mean they have three matches in hand.

The form of the Swans doesn’t offer any confidence for fans with two wins in 15 Premier League games – and just one in five since Garry Monk was appointed interim manager in February.
