The Danish manager's agent, Bayram Tutumlu, said on Wednesday Laudrup is set to begin contract discussions with the Welsh club's board "in the coming days".

The 48-year-old boss has enjoyed an impressive debut season in South Wales so far, guiding the Swans to the Capital One Cup final as well as keeping them in the top half of the Premier League to build on last year's maiden top-flight campaign under Brendan Rodgers.

Laudrup, who succeeded Rodgers in June, is out of contract at the Liberty Stadium next summer.

But reports suggest the Dane is likely to be offered a 12-month extension and the manager is keen to stay on.

He told The Sun: "I have said more than once my intention is to stay. We are way ahead of what I could have imagined - being in a league cup final."

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!
