Danny Graham: Swansea striker, who has been linked with Norwich and Reading, wan

The striker, who is interesting Norwich and Reading, has been in and out of the side this season and hopes to have a meeting with manager Michael Laudrup about his long-term prospects.

In an exclusive interview with Sky Sports News, Graham said: "The gaffer stated in the press recently that he wants to talk to everyone who hasn't been playing as much as the others and that's me - that's in my bracket.

"Hopefully over the next few days or so the gaffer will pull me aside and talk to me and let me know what's going on.

"As a footballer I want to be playing football. If that's not the case and the meeting with the gaffer doesn't go to plan then I'll have to sit down and see what happens - see what offers are on the table.

"I'm 27, it's a short career and I want to be playing games. This could be my last big move... or it couldn't.

"I'm just trying to get on with it, keep my head down and work hard and we'll see what happens in January."

he 'where does it end' argument is an absurd one and completely misses the point of the Rooney Rule, which applies to all minorities. It doesn't force any team to appoint anyone, it merely requires them to interview at least one minority candidate.

ou make a lot of good points, but I still find myself instinctively against anything that makes it easier for Paul Ince to get managerial roles
