Danny Graham: Sunderland have reportedly made a bid for the Swansea striker

The Gateshead-born striker has enjoyed an impressive run of form at the Liberty Stadium, striking interest from a number of Premier League clubs including Newcastle, QPR, Norwich and Reading.

Graham joined Michael Laudrup's Swans side in 2011 after making a £3.5m move from Watford, and has scored four goals in his last five games.

The 27-year-old has had limited opportunities under Laudrup after being forced to play second fiddle to Michu in attack, but is reportedly unable to leave Swansea until a replacement is found.

Stoke's Kenwyne Jones is Graham's purported replacement, with the Potters striker set to be given permission to talk with Swansea despite being a first team regular at the Britannia Stadium.

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
