Everton continue to have a major interest in the midfielder and have made a £40m bid which has not been accepted, with the Toffees previously told they must meet Swansea's £45million valuation if they are to take him to Goodison.
The Icelander turned out for the Swans in their pre-season opener at Barnet on Wednesday night, captaining the side in the second half of their 1-0 defeat, but will not be with his team-mates as they travel to the United States.

Swansea tweeted on Thursday to say the creative player was 'not in the right from of mind'
Having made a special effort to inform fans that Sigurdsson was present at Barnet on Wednesday, the Welsh club took to Twitter on Thursday morning to reveal he will not be with the travelling party due to concerns over his frame of mind.
Swansea tweeted: 'Having played v Barnet last night, Gylfi did not feel in the right frame of mind to travel due to the current uncertainty over his future.'
Manager Paul Clement has previously insisted Sigurdsson will only leave the club on their terms: ‘He is training hard and straightaway he is at the top of all the statistics physically,’ said the Swansea boss.

‘I am planning for him to be here, but there is clearly some very strong interest in him. We will have to see what happens.
'He has three years on his contract and if any business is going to be done, it will be done on the terms we want.
‘The club recognised his contribution by giving him an extended contract last season. He was happy to stay on here.
'At the moment he is a Swansea player and we have to carry on looking at it that way.’
