Tottenham Hotspur are considering a £25 million move to bring former midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson back to the club from Swansea City, according to The Daily Mail.
Sigurdsson has scored nine goals and assisted 13 this season, helping Swansea to secure survival in the Premier League with a game to spare.
Swansea were bottom of the league with 12 points from 19 games when Paul Clement was appointed head coach at the start of January.
"He was here on loan and then he went to Tottenham, which was set to be the next step in his career".
'They would have tried to have come back on Saturday if they could! "Sooner or later that is going to happen, the technology (that) will help the referees to be more fair about what happens in the game, to make less mistakes because there are a lot of mistakes".
"He can not have another situation like he had there".
"Otherwise he is better staying here, being a key player and building something around moving this club forward".
Sigurdsson won the players' player of the year, supporters' player of the year and away player of the year as he cleaned up once again at the end-of-season awards dinner.
After picking up the trophy, Sigurdsson, who signed a new four-year contract last August, said he remains happy at Swansea and will only leave the Liberty Stadium if the club want to sell him.
Gylfi Sigurdsson claims he has no intentions to leave Swansea City amid interest from a number of other Premier League clubs.
"We want him to be able to see from the second half of the season that he is not going to have another situation like this one", added the Swans boss.
"A lot of players have to make that decision in their careers. It's down to them, but I'm very happy here", he said, as reported by the Liverpool Echo.
On the importance of ending the season on a high after an eight-match winless run: "The results have been disappointing but apart from maybe one or two, I think the players have given everything and have been a little bit unfortunate not to get anything".
"I signed a new contract in the summer and I've got three years left", Sigurdsson said after becoming the first man to be named Swansea's player of the year in successive seasons.
