Chairman Huw Jenkins expects Swansea to face a battle to hold onto star midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson when his loan deal comes to an end this summer.

The Icelander, who has scored seven goals in 15 appearances since joining on loan from Hoffenheim in January, has said he would be happy to stay with the Swans, but Jenkins knows persuading the German club to sell the 22-year-old is another matter.

He told BBC Radio Wales: "He's done a great job for us and is still only young. Our aim is to keep our best players. We've always tried to do that over the years and it will be no different with Gylfi."
