Reading remain in race to sign Sigurdsson

Reading have remain firmly in the race to sign Gylfi Sigurdsson, who is set to decide on his future this weekend.

It appears that it has become a three-horse race for the Icelandic midfielder, with Premier League sides Tottenham and Liverpool also perusing an interest. All three clubs have had an offer of 6.8 million accepted by German side Hoffenheim, but Sigurdsson is yet to decide his preferred destination.

Liverpool still appear to be favourites to sign him, despite many media sources claiming the 22-year old could be on his way to White Hart Lane. Sigurdsson's father, who is also his agent, speaking to Icelandic radio confirmed talks with the Reds but revealed that Gylfi is yet to make a decision on his future.

His father also mentioned how he was disappointed to leave Reading back in 2010, claiming he would like to have stayed for longer. The Reading-academy graduate made 42 appearances for the Royals, scoring an impressive 20 goals. Sigurdsson's loan spell at Swansea was similarly successful, scoring seven times in 18 games.

My second favourite location for the lad to end up ;-) I can't believe so many Spurs fans fail to see the quality Sigs can bring. Watched him many times at the Mad Stad when he was head and shoulders above everyone at the age of 19. Spurs will have him lined up as a potential replacement for VDV, who I have a feeling will be on his way this summer.

Yeah, many Spurs fans are seeing him as a replacement for Modric or Van Der Vaart but by no means is he a bad replacement. A magnificent footballer with such great dead ball ability.
