The Wales defender has been linked with a £15million summer switch to join former boss Brendan Rodgers at Anfield, where the Swans travel on Sunday for their Premier League clash.

While Laudrup insists he wants to keep hold of his best players, he is relaxed about the situation.

He said: "Of course I want to keep hold of my best players - and that includes Ashley Williams.

"But these stories also show me that the bigger clubs want my players because they are performing so well.

"That is only natural."

Laudrup is focused on the Anfield clash before his side take on League Two's Bradford in the Capital One Cup final next Sunday, with the Swansea boss insisting final places are still up for grabs.

He added: "I haven't picked my team for the final yet, so every player still has a chance.

"But Liverpool at Anfield is a huge game for us. We have to go and think about the final after that."

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
