Sky Sports pundit claims Swansea star should be playing for top half club

Big fish, little pond

Graeme Souness has claimed that Swansea‘s talisman Gylfi Sigurðsson should be playing for a club in the top half of the Premier League.

The Iceland star has become one player too big for his current club, with the Swans being threatened with relegation.

Sigurðsson did move to Tottenham in 2012 following a loan spell at Swansea but was unable to consistently break into the first team.

The attacking midfielder has now taken his game to another level and looked impressive on several occasions during a less than impressive season from others at the club.

Following the players failed move to the Premier League elite with Spurs, it may be unlikely that the player would move unless Swansea were relegated.

“He could comfortably play for a club in the top half of the Premier League,” Souness explained.

“Swansea are lucky to have him and he seems to be happy there.”

Swansea to stay up?

The Welsh side have hit some impressive form over the past few weeks, even leading to Paul Clement picking up the manager of the month award for January.

Swansea have won important fixtures with Crystal Palace, Liverpool, Southampton and Leicester to propel them away from the bottom three.
