Rumour Mill: SkyBet Tipping Sigurdsson Move To Spurs?

According to SkyBet, Tottenham may be eyeing up a move to resign Iceland international Gylfi Sigurdsson.

Today, Tottenham curiously went from 22/1 to sign the former Spur, to 5/4, implying that Sigurdsson’s return to Tottenham is suddenly much more on the cards.

In spite of this, Everton remain the favourites at 4/5, having been heavily linked with the play-maker’s signature for weeks.

In addition to this, The Independent reckons Tottenham’s social media actions tell even more of the tale, having posted a montage of Sigurdsson’s goals in a Spurs shirt on both Twitter and FaceBook.

The Independent claims this is Tottenham’s way of attempting to subtly hint towards a prospective deal to bring the 27 year old back to the club.

This is a very loose claim however, as Spurs were merely posting the video as a tribute to the fact that it’s 5 years to the day that Sigurdsson officially signed for Tottenham in 2012.

Many times have Tottenham posted similar videos about other players fans have held in high regard even after leaving club, such as Gareth Bale and Luka Modric.

That said, although The Independent’s claim is weak, the SkyBet news is very interesting and this could very well be something to keep our eyes on while the Barkley saga also unfolds later into the window.

Sigurdsson managed 10 goals and 13 assists in 40 appearances in all competitions throughout a very impressive campaign for Swansea City, who flirted with relegation last season.

Who would you rather sign, Barkley or Sigurdsson?

  1. Betting on these markets means absolutely nothing and should definitely not be used as an indication that someone knows something. For the record, i like Gylfi, would rather him come back and be the backup to Eriksen/Alli than us sign a player from abroad that has a sexy name and looks good on FIFA 17 but nobody knows how they’ll get on in the PL (yet all our fans want these type of players). So this morning i went into a bookies (PP) and asked for £50 @ 20/1 on Gylfi returning, but after phoning head office i was told i could only have £25 @ 20/1 and the other £25 @ 17/2 – the price the firm clipped it to after my £25 bet. I was completely guessing,putting 2 & 2 together and getting 5, i know absolutely nothing. Yet my bet reduced the price from 20/1 to 17/2. Using these markets as a guide is worthless !
