thumbnail Hello,

The Iceland international had been expected to complete a permanent move to the Welsh side, but has admitted that Brendan Rodgers' recent move could see him join the Reds

Hoffenheim midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson has admitted he is now weighing up a move to Liverpool instead of Swansea City.

The Iceland international enjoyed a fruitful six-month loan spell with the Swans last term, scoring seven goals in 18 Premier League appearances.

And, though the South Wales club announced they had agreed personal terms and a fee for the 22-year-old last week, he has revealed that Brendan Rodgers' move to Merseyside could change things.

"It's just unclear at this moment where I will play," he told Icelandic publication mbl.is.

"I'd like to play on with Swansea since I was really happy there but after Brendan Rodgers left the club for Liverpool, that changed the situation.

"I expect not to stay at Swansea because of the uncertainty going on there as it is not clear who is boss.

"I have said that my desire to continue playing in the Premier League and Liverpool is completely considered. Liverpool is a big club that has a glorious history.

"English Premier League is the platform that I want to be and hopefully is that I continue to play in that division."

The former Reading midfielder also confessed he had already spoken to Rodgers following his confirmation as the Anfield outfit's new coach.

"I got in touch with Brendan when he was appointed Liverpool manager," he added.

"I wish him congratulations and thanked him for a great time at Swansea."
