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."

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
