Swansea City have agreed a fee with Hoffenheim for the signing of midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson, according to reports.

Sigurdsson, 22, spent the second half of the season on loan at Swansea from Hoffenheim, impressing at the Liberty Stadium as he scored seven times in 18 Premier League matches.

The Swans confirmed their intention to secure the Iceland international on a permanent basis, although the Welsh club faced competition for his signature.

It is reported on Monday, however, that a fee of around £7 million has been agreed between Swansea and their Bundesliga counterparts.

Sigurdsson, who joined Hoffenheim from Reading in 2010 for £6 million, last month expressed his willingness to remain at Swansea, who finished 11th in the 2011-12 season.
