Michael Laudrup: Swansea boss wants to have another striker in before letting Da

The £5million-rated Swans forward has been heavily linked with a move away from the Liberty Stadium, with Norwich City said to be the likely suitors.

Laudrup last week saw a reported £3m bid for Kenwyne Jones rejected by Stoke City and the Dane has since hinted that Swansea need to have a ready-made replacement to fill Graham's void if the 27-year-old was to leave.

"In the end it's always about the balance of the team. Of course it is important as well what the players feel. It's a combination of everything about the player, about the club and about the team," Laudrup told the Daily Mirror.

"In the end you make a decision and that's it. But Danny is 100 per cent professional in training and in games. We do not know what will happen - he may leave, he may stay.

"We have to find the best solution for everybody."

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
