Swansea City manager Paul Clement has stated that the standoff between the Welsh side and Everton over Gylfi Sigurdsson's future remains and that there has been no progression over a potential summer deal.

Swansea are reportedly holding out for a £50million fee for Sigurdsson, with Everton seen as frontrunners in the race to sign him, with Leicester City also in the mix.

Sigurdsson was not selected for Swansea's friendly against Sampdoria on Saturday but Clement insists that his exclusion was in the best interests of all concerned.

The France global has plenty experience to bring to the table, and would be a ideal marquee signing as the Merseysiders attempt a shot at a top 6 Premier League finish next term.

"But my focus is on the players I'm working with and getting ready for the season. I was happy with the performance today".

"No change since we last spoke - all parties would like it resolved", Clement said to Sky Sports.

Hartson, who won 51 caps for Wales and scored 14 goals, believes Swansea are not reliant on funds generated by Sigurdsson's sale should Clement wish to strengthen his squad.

City would have to pay a hefty fee and good wages to help them get a work permit for Lima and they are now working on the cost of the overall package.

"And it is best for everyone that he doesn't play in these [pre-season] games".

"Sigurdsson is one of those you cannot sell, you just cannot., but the problem you've got is if the player wants to go and they [another club] come up with the massive amount of money, which is £50m, then there's really nothing you can do".
