Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers revealed his delight at being reunited with midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson, who inspired his side's 2-1 win at West Brom.

The Icelandic international impressed Rodgers when working under him at Reading and has now linked up with the Swans on loan from Hoffenheim. Sigurdsson cancelled out Marc-Antoine's opener with his first goal for the club and then laid on the winner for Danny Graham.

Rodgers said: "I put him in the team when I was manager at Reading so I know everything about him. felt we needed an offensive midfielder for the second half of the season and he fits the bill perfectly for that."
