Gylfi Sigurdsson was left out of Swansea's squad for Saturday's friendly at Birmingham City "due to the current transfer speculation surrounding him".

The Swans have rejected a £40m offer from Everton for the Iceland midfielder, who they value at £50m, while Leicester have also had a bid turned down this summer.

Sigurdsson did not travel with Swansea for their tour of the United States.

The 27-year-old has since returned to first-team training.

Swansea beat Birmingham 2-0 thanks to goals from Tammy Abraham and Leroy Fer.

Striker Abraham, signed on a season-long loan from Chelsea, converted a cross by Fer, who added the second with a deflected strike.
