Ronald Koeman has revealed Gylfi Sigurdsson has had his medical at Everton

Ronald Koeman had previously seen two bids rejected for the former Tottenham midfielder but he has now got his man on a five-year deal.

Everton have agreed a fee of £45m with Swansea City for the services of Gylfi Sigurdsson, according to The Telegraph. "In my opinion he is, in his position, one of the best in the Premier League".

Sigurdsson, who played a pivotal role in Swansea retaining its Premier League status last term after scoring nine goals and creating 13, pulled out of its pre-season tour to the United States and was not included in the squad for last weekend's 0-0 draw with Southampton.

One player who certainly brought Koeman's specified productivity to the Everton team in the 1-0 win over Stoke City in their domestic season opener was Wayne Rooney.

'He is the type of player with a lot of productivity.

Everton have completed the signing of playmaker Gylfi Sigurdsson, and the player will be wearing the #18 shirt for the Toffees. "Maybe for Monday, I do not know.

That's always been the same for me wherever I have played", Barry said on West Brom's official website.

Sigurdsson gets a game wherever he goes and looks perfectly good in any team you put him in, he's a fabulous player and I think he single-handedly kept his club up last season.

The manager also confirmed he is still waiting to find out the extent of a hamstring injury midfielder Ross Barkley suffered in training last week.

The England worldwide, who has been linked with a move to Tottenham, has not trained for several days but Koeman did not put a timeframe on his return. "I will wait until the end of August", he added when asked about Barkley's future at the club.

And with Sigurdsson just days away from becoming an Everton player, some Chelsea supporters believe the Iceland global could be a replacement for Barkley - boosting their chances of signing the 23-year-old contract rebel.
