One of the more protracted transfer wrangles of the summer has finally concluded with the news that Everton have successfully pilfered Gylfi Sigurdsson from Swansea for a club record fee.

The actual price tag is officially undisclosed but is being widely reported as a piffling £45million – mere chump change in this day and age.

Humongous basic outlay aside, Everton have snagged themselves a true gem of a player in Sigurdsson.

Goals aplenty, set-piece excellence, dead-ball assists galore, a prolific creator, intelligent, hard-working, still only 27 and a boyhood Toffees fan, at least according to his brother…

That said, it does seem like Everton are spending an awful lot of money just to finish seventh again.

    Nice bloke, I’m sure he’ll do well.

    Might even get Everton a 6th place finish, you never know.
