Laudrup has been linked with Real Betis midfielder Jose Canas and Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku, who has impressed at West Brom during his loan spell from Chelsea this season.

However, the Dane, who guided Swansea to their historic Capital One Cup win and a place in next season's Europa League in his first campaign with the club, has refused to speculate on any potential targets.

"It's good to hear talk about those players and Swansea because the players are at a very high level," Laudrup told the South Wales Evening Post.

"I would be feeling sorry if you mentioned names and I thought: 'I don't think they are good enough to play here'.

"But you are talking about one player who is the captain of a Spanish side and another who has scored 13 goals with West Brom this season.

"They are good players, and I always like to have good players."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
