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."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
