Ki joined Sunderland before the close of the summer transfer window and has impressed for Gus Poyet's side in recent weeks.

The midfielder scored the winner against Chelsea in the quarter-finals of the Capital One Cup and scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot away to Everton on Boxing Day.

The South Korea international was on target again on Saturday in Sunderland's 4-1 win at Fulham which lifted Gus Poyet's side off the bottom of the table.

However, reports have claimed that Swansea could recall Ki to the Liberty Stadium this month in light of an injury crisis in Laudrup's squad.

Jose Canas was forced off in the 2-0 defeat at Manchester United to become the ninth first-team player currently unavailable to Laudrup.

The Swans boss, though, does not believe that it would be the right decision to cut short Ki's season-long stint at Sunderland.

"There is a possibility to bring him back but I don't think it is a good idea," said the Dane.

"Ki feels comfortable where he is now. If we take him back, he would not play every game. Mentally, it would be very bad for him."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
