Gylfi Sigurdsson has completed his £45 million move from Swansea to Everton - a deal that adds to what has been a very busy summer for the Toffees in terms of recruitment.

The Iceland global, 27, has inked a five-year deal at the Toffees, putting to bed a drawn-out process between the two clubs.

"Hopefully I will continue to create goals and score goals for the team and contribute to the kind of success we´re seeking at the club", he told evertontv.

We brought several players in, in really important positions, also players with future like Pickford, Keane, Klaassen, that's good for the future of the club.

He scored nine goals, and set up 13 more, for Swansea last season and scored a total of 30 in three seasons since returning to the Welsh club in 2014.

Ronald Koeman has hailed the capture of Sigurdsson, who will wear the no.18 shirt, as one of Everton's most crucial signings of the summer tranfer window.

PREMIER League bosses are to be given a say on whether there should be changes to the summer transfer window. "We have the player here and that's really good for the team".

The proposals would not affect transfers from Premier League clubs to foreign sides or vice versa, thus Diego Costa and Philippe Coutinho's desire for moves from respectively champions Chelsea to Atletico Madrid and Liverpool to Barcelona could still go ahead.

"It looks like a hamstring injury but we need to do more tests", said Koeman, who is not yet sure when Barkley will be fit.

Sigurdsson will have to wait for his Everton debut as he hasn't completed 90 minutes during pre-season and is unlikely to play in the Europa League tie with Hajduk Split.

'We worked a long time to get this deal in and he was one of the key players to bring in, ' said Koeman. Sigurdsson joined Swansea on loan in January 2012 from German club Hoffenheim before a permanent transfer to the South Wales club collapsed and Tottenham signed him for two years.

But the ex-Wales defender says Swansea are standing still and fears for their Premier League status without the Iceland global. "I mentioned after the game he was by far the best player on the pitch".
