Swansea midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson is set for a medical at Everton today ahead of his proposed £45million move.

And the Iceland worldwide was subsequently not included in their Premier League opener against Southampton on Sunday.

The 27-year-old is set to undergo a medical on Wednesday prior to joining Everton for what will be the Merseyside club's record transfer fee.

And Swansea were just as keen to close the deal to give them time to find replacements before the transfer window closes.

Ronald Koeman is reportedly willing to sell the midfielder to recoup some of the outlay the club are spending on Sigurdsson and is said to have placed a £25 million price tag on the Irishman's head.

Meanwhile, the party executive will meet within 28 days to set the rules for a leadership election process. He said the new government should revise MLA pension plans introduced 10 years ago by the BC Liberals.

Sigurdsson enjoyed an excellent season at the Liberty Stadium last term, scoring nine goals and registering 13 assists in the Premier League.

His form has convinced Everton chiefs to splash out on Sigurdsson, adding to Wayne Rooney, Jordan Pickford, Davy Klaassen, Michael Keane, Cuco Martina and Sandro Ramirez all joining the Toffees.

The Welsh club then turned down a similar bid from Everton, who had been interested in signing the Iceland playmaker for more than a year.

Sigurdsson missed Swansea's 0-0 draw at Southampton, which led to criticism of the transfer deadline from the club's own manager Paul Clement after he was forced to leave him out.

Wilfried Bony, their former striker who appears surplus to requirements at Manchester City, and West Brom forward Nacer Chadli are both on Swansea's radar.
