Iceland midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson is due to complete a £45 million (US$58m, 49.4m euros, RM249) move to Everton from Premier League rivals Swansea later on Wednesday if he passes a medical, British media reported.

The Icelandic playmaker poised to finally complete his move to Goodison Park after the clubs came to an agreement over a fee for the star.

He rejoined first-team training upon Swansea's return from the States but he did not feature in their 0-0 draw against Southampton.

Sigurdsson was left out of Swansea's squad for Saturday's clash with Southampton, which prompted Swans boss Paul Clement to criticise the transfer deadline.

And Swansea were just as keen to close the deal to give them time to find replacements before the transfer window closes. That is very often how a deal is made.

Sigurdsson, who scored nine goals and contributed 13 assists during Swansea's battle against relegation last season, is set to undergo a medical today.

The 27-year old was integral to Swansea retaining their Premier League status for another season, and his productive campaign saw only Kevin De Bruyne and Christian Eriksen, two of the league's chief creators, record more assists.

Everton's majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri has spent close to £100m so far in recruiting former favourite Wayne Rooney, Jordan Pickford, Davy Klaassen, Michael Keane, Cuco Martina and Sandro Ramirez.

Manchester City striker Wilfried Bony, West Brom forward Nacer Chadli and Stoke midfielder Joe Allen have all been linked with Swansea.
