Medhi Lacen: Getafe midfielder has been linked with Swansea

Recent speculation has claimed that Swansea boss Michael Laudrup is planning another raid on La Liga to sign Lacen in the summer.

Lacen is an admirer of former Denmark international Laudrup, but will wait until the end of the season before taking his future at Getafe into consideration.

"I have a contract here until 2015, so let's wait until the end of the season to see what will happen," said the 28-year-old.

"I know Michael Laudrup, he was an excellent player, a top midfield player in the World Cup, a typical No.10 and he is also a great coach.

"I know nothing of Swansea's interest in me, but I will look into it seriously if there is an interest in England.

"I love the English league and would love to play there one day."

Lacen joined Getafe from Racing Santander in 2011 and reports have suggested the Algerian is keen to move to another country after spending the last eight years in Spain.

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.
