The 27-year-old striker was reported on Tuesday to be undergoing a medical ahead of a £4m transfer and had said his goodbyes to his Swansea team-mates.

However, Laudrup quashed the rumours and revealed Graham would be part of Swansea's squad for the Capital One Cup semi-final first leg against Chelsea on Wednesday.

He told the South Wales Evening Post: "I haven't heard anything about anyone not being here. Danny is in our squad for the game, of course. Apart from that, I don't want to talk about transfers.

"I know it is January and you will ask me questions all through this month, but I think the game against Chelsea is so important for us that we should not talk about anything apart from Chelsea. It's a huge game for the players, for the club - for all of us."

Graham has lost his regular place in Swansea's starting line-up this season due to the outstanding form of Spanish striker Michu and it has been reported that Sunderland manager Martin O'Neill is interested in offering the former Watford striker a way out.

He could be replaced at the Liberty Stadium by Kenwyne Jones, who is reported to be on Laudrup's shortlist as he looks to vary his attacking options.

put Ince in my fantasy football team, so it's no surprise at all really. I do that to players. Also responsible for De Jong and Upson being injured. Think I'll transfer in Di Maria just to ruin United....
