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."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
