Laudrup Expects To Complete Sung-Yeung Move

Laudrup Expects To Complete Sung-Yeung Move

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup says he expects to complete the signing of Celtic midfielder Ki Sung-yeung by Friday.

Laudrup says the young 'dynamic' South Korean will be an important midfielder for his squad, as he comes in to replace Joe Allen, who joined Liverpool in a £15m move.

He said: 'The contract is not signed yet. I would like to wait before everything is signed and sealed but the deal should go through, he is an important player for us to have in the midfield.

'He's an important player to have in midfield,'

'We lost Joe Allen [to Liverpool] of course so it's important looking at the strength of the squad and to have a dynamic player like that.

'The players we have signed here and the players we will sign are players that can fit into our style.

'He's already played a couple of seasons in British football and that's very important. The players who have come in from abroad have had a great start but I think experience of this kind of football is important as well.'


Laudrup is also still hopeful of being able to complete a move for Valencia winger Pablo Hernandez, he added:

'We still have eight days (to complete a deal),'

'It is always nice to hear players want to come here or play for a manager, but we will leave these things until after Saturday's game against West Ham because the most important players are the ones that are here, not the ones who could come or leave, that's why we must focus on the game.'
