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."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
