Laudrup Doubts Transfer Fee Record Will Be Broken

Laudrup Doubts Transfer Fee Record Will Be Broken

Talking about signings in the January transfer window, Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup says he doubts the club's transfer fee record will be broken, but he says there will be new signings.

Although the Swans might not break the current transfer fee record of £5.55m paid for Pablo Hernandez, they'll at least strengthen the squad this month, Laudrup confirms.

'There will be somebody coming in, but I don't want to talk names or numbers right now because I honestly don't know,'

'It's January and a lot of things can happen, but I don't think we will break the transfer record this month.'


One story that has dominated the media this week regarding the Swans is striker Danny Graham. He clearly isn't happy with a lack of first team opportunities, and is willing to consider a move elsewhere if it'll guarantee him more games. The likes of Norwich City, Reading and Sunderland are just three fellow Premier League clubs being linked with the frontman, who has scored a goal in each of the last two games.

Laudrup says he needs to talk to Graham to determine whether or not is head is in the right place to face Arsenal in Sunday's FA Cup tie, as well as where he believes his future lies.

Whether I will keep playing Danny is a question that has to be asked,'

'I will have to speak to Danny, and to any of the players who could be involved in an eventual move, about whether they are focused.

'I will ask them to answer honestly. If they say they have a lot of things going on then okay, at least they are honest and they will be ruled out for the coming game.

'If they say 'No, I am 100 per cent', they will be a part of it if I think they should be part of it.'

'Danny has played the last couple of games, but like everyone else he wants to play regularly,' Laudrup added.

'I haven't spoken to him yet about how he feels. I have spoken to some of the other players, but what was said will remain private.

'I will speak to these players and say right now, you are one of three players for one position, so you choose.

'If the player says he wants to stay and fight then great, but if he says I want to go to have more chance of playing then I respect that as well.

'That's not to say he will definitely stay or definitely go — then it depends on the money and everything else.'
