The Dane has been mentioned as being among the candidates to take over at White Hart Lane and was quoted as an 8/1 shot for the job by Sky Bet on Thursday morning.

But former Celtic midfielder Wieghorst said: "I don't think the club should be worried.

"We've seen in his time here he's been linked with a few vacant jobs and he's said: 'I'm staying'.

"Michael has always attracted interest and that's because he's doing a great job [and] because he's a great manager and because of what he's done in the game."

Former Juventus, Barcelona and Real Madrid midfielder Laudrup took charge at Swansea in June 2012 and signed a new contract in March which tied him to the Welsh club until 2015.

He has previously managed at Brondby, Getafe, Spartak Moscow and Mallorca.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
