Michael Laudrup: Set to discuss new Swansea deal

Laudrup's current contract runs until the end of next season but Swans chairman Huw Jenkins confirmed last week he would like to extend the Dane's deal by a further 12 months.

Laudrup, 48, has been linked with Chelsea and Real Madrid and, while he has stated he is happy in south Wales, he recently said he was in no rush to negotiate new terms.

However, Laudrup's agent Bayram Tutumlu told Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet: "Yes, Swansea has a strong interest in extending Michael Laudrup's contract.

"In the coming days, we will meet with Swansea and discuss the possibility of an extension."

Laudrup is enjoying a good first season in charge of Swansea after replacing Brendan Rodgers in June.

The Swans are currently seventh in the Premier League table and are looking forward to their first major final later this month, when they face League Two Bradford in the Capital One Cup at Wembley.

Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
