Gylfi Sigurdsson: Set to be unveiled as Tottenham's first signing under Andre Villas-Boas
Sky Sports understands former Swansea star Gylfi Sigurdsson is poised to seal his move to Tottenham in the next 24 hours.
The Icelandic international is expected to be unveiled as new Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas' first signing on Wednesday.
Spurs have beaten Liverpool to the 22-year-old's signature with Brendan Rodgers keen to be reunited with the attacking midfielder having signed him last season at Swansea.
Sigurdsson enjoyed a successful spell on loan at Swansea last season and his performances have not gone unnoticed.
The talented playmaker scored seven goals in 19 games for Swansea last term and was named the Premier League player of the month for March.
Swansea had agreed a deal to sign Sigurdsson on a permanent basis, but Rodgers' departure to Liverpool all but saw their hopes of signing him ended.
Spurs are believed to have agreed a fee with Hoffenheim for Sigurdsson with the former Reading man also agreeing personal terms and passing a medical at White Hart Lane.
