New Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has made his first signing as head coach after it was revealed that Gylfi Sigurdsson had completed his move from Hoffenheim.
The midfielder has been in talks with Tottenham for some time and now that Villas-Boas has finally been appointed it seems the deal can now be pushed through.
Sigurdsson enjoyed a successful spell on-loan at Swansea last season and it had been believed that he would return to the Premier League, with the Welsh club originally his first choice.
However, when Brendan Rodgers left Swansea to join Liverpool, it appeared as though the Iceland international may well choose to move to Anfield.
Liverpool were confident of landing Sigurdsson but have now been pipped by Tottenham who will hope he can deliver the same sort of displays he managed at Swansea when he scored seven goals in just 18 games.
The 22-year-old is believed to have cost around £8million and he will soon join the club in order to begin pre-season training which begins in a matter of weeks.
