Michael Laudrup: Swansea manager quiet on transfer speculation

Laudrup has been linked with Real Betis midfielder Jose Canas and Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku, who has impressed at West Brom during his loan spell from Chelsea this season.

However, the Dane, who guided Swansea to their historic Capital One Cup win and a place in next season's Europa League in his first campaign with the club, has refused to speculate on any potential targets.

"It's good to hear talk about those players and Swansea because the players are at a very high level," Laudrup told the South Wales Evening Post.

"I would be feeling sorry if you mentioned names and I thought: 'I don't think they are good enough to play here'.

"But you are talking about one player who is the captain of a Spanish side and another who has scored 13 goals with West Brom this season.

"They are good players, and I always like to have good players."

othing screams 'Panic!!' when your new manager brings Fellaini on as a sub for your star signing of the summer and within 5 minutes you concede the winner. I know it is only the first game in but I would seriously be sh1**ng myself I was a Man Utd supporter. This has the potential of being very nasty indeed.

n the words of Pete Townsend, meet the new boss, the same as the old boss. Though I would comment that it's 3 more points than we picked up in the same fixture last year, so that's a 100% improvement.
