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.

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.
