Unsurprisingly word from the Tea Lady with the mostest is that the Gylfi Þór Sigurðsson to Everton story is not science fiction.
Personal terms have been agreed between Tottenham Hotspur Football Club and the player and only days ago Glad told us that the transfer was being finalised.
Had any normal human being been negotiating for us, Siggy could have been holding up the shirt by now.
But no. Levy’s idea of finalising a deal is to deconstruct it and look to see how he can really p*ss off the other party. To which end a financially flush Everton have offered Swansea City precisely what they want, including – better payment terms – which to those of you in the cheap seats means that they get the money quicker.
Siggy is apparently pragmatic about the whole business. He is no stranger to the way Spurs do business.
Levy time: where time and deals stand still.
