this united link is really disheartening.
his record at reading, hofenheim and swansea is nothing short of remarkable given his young age and the fact hes replicated his exceptional technical ability and set piece ability (which we sorely lack) everywhere hes went!
has he got a place in our side? given his age, yes! the fact rodgers has already managed him and got the best out of him has to count for something too. heir to gerrard? that elusive AMF? or at worse, a solid squad player who can score the odd wonder goal when called into the side to grab 3 points (aka Kranjcar for spurs last season). for 7M, its a bargain to be quite honest. you'll sell him on for that in 3-4 seasons easily.
will rodgers go for him? i dont think he will hijack the deal, i think siggurdsson himself will see swansea without rodgers as a bad and potentially career threatening move were they to get relegated.
