Laudrup Expects To Receive Bids For Players

Laudrup Expects To Receive Bids For Players

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup says he won't be surprised if he receives bids for his players, after they proved emselves in the Premier League last season.



n agreement was put in place with former manager Brendan Rodgers preventing him from buying any of Swansea's players for the next 12 months, but the Irishman will be able to bid for the likes of Joe Allen or Scott Sinclair if the Swans accept bids from other clubs first.



oe Allen has been linked with a move to Liverpool while Scott Sinclair is still yet to sign a new contract, as his current deal expires next Summer.



fter an excellent debut season last year in the Premier League, Laudrup says he won't be surprised if he receives bids for his star players, as they proved all of their doubters wrong - that they could step up to the top flight.



I>'It's normal there is interest but of course we want to keep our most important players here,'



But it's also a part of football to accept sometimes that people leave when the offer is too big - for the club or for the player.'



Last year was Swansea's first in the Premier League and some of the players were not that well known at the highest level,'



They were maybe well known here [in Swansea] but it was not known how they would do at the highest level.



They've come up to the Premiership and other teams have seen them doing very well; these one, two or three players.



I don't know what happened with that agreement [with Liverpool].



Of course I will do everything to keep the best players here but we will just have to see when the moment arrives with one player and it's a fact we'll have to deal with it.'



t still remains quite a surprise that no club has made a bid for Ashley Williams as he has stepped up to the higher standard after every promotion - since League One. Joe Allen is also a promising young midfielder who has been linked with moves away before while Nathan Dyer impressed on many occasions last year, including the 3-2 home win against Arsenal.



wansea City certainly do not need to sell any of their players thanks to the TV money they're receiving and Laudrup will be keen to hold onto to the players which have significantly contributed to the club's success over the last few years.
