Sigurdsson saga will not drag to the end of the window - Clement

Southampton defender Maya Yoshida

Midfield talisman Sigurdsson is on the verge of completing a £50m move to Everton.

Maybe we could even see a cup push happening rather than worrying about where the next points are coming from, which has been the way of the last two seasons.

The Iceland worldwide has not featured for the Swans in pre-season since pulling out of a tour to the United States, and Clement has revealed he will continue to overlook the 27-year-old.

The next step is to continue building the identity of the club, and to play the sort of football we want to here.

Clement is bullish that Llorente will remain at Swansea but is resigned to losing the talismanic Sigurdsson, whose protracted transfer to Everton has not yet been finalised.

"I have just met with the players to talk about our objectives for the season and those objectives are very clear", Clement told pressmen on Thursday.

He had a good January transfer window with the arrival of Tom Carroll, Martin Olssen, Jordan Ayew and Luciano Narsingh and then he got more out of the players around them. "He will not be in the squad".

Australia will support United States in conflict with N.Korea: PM
The US President has not backed away from those remarks, today saying his language could have been even tougher. He would not say if Mr Pence sought any specific assurances of military aid from Australia.

"He has got a year to go on his deal and we'd like him to stay for this year and longer", said Clement.

Wilfried Bony, their former striker who appears surplus to requirements at Manchester City, and West Brom forward Nacer Chadli are both understood to be on Swansea's radar. "Of course I would like the situation resolved as soon as possible, I've said that quite clearly".

"Although this situation has dragged on it has not changed my focus about working with the players".

"All the players have had a good attitude in pre-season and they are very focused".

Meanwhile, Everton boss Koeman is confident Everton are close to striking a deal with Swansea for the playmaker, he said: "It's still close". That has not changed. "Talks are ongoing and I'm speaking to our chairman and owners every day for an update but there isn't a current conclusion to it at the moment".

"That is better for us, better for them, but everybody knows the window is hard. And then we have to make sure we're not in the same situation we found ourselves in last season - fighting relegation right up until the penultimate game".

"We are not in a hurry but finally we hope to do the deal".
