Laudrup plans to stay

Michael Laudrup has insisted he does not plan to leave Swansea City but expressed frustration with the board's failure to make the signings he has requested.

• Blog: Canas deal calms rumours

Recent reports have stated that Laudrup has grown frustrated with chairman Huw Jenkins' failure to bolster the squad this summer as the Dane seeks to build on his highly successful debut campaign.

The Swans have since agreed a deal to sign Real Betis midfielder Jose Canas, but Laudrup feels it is hard to explain the lack of progress in bringing in more of the potential targets he identified at the end of the season.

"I have always said that my intention was, and is, to stay at the club," he told the South Wales Echo. "I think all the speculation regarding my future is due to the fact that there hasn't been any good news since we played our last game three weeks ago. We all need some good news.

"I had hoped for some signings at this stage, but I think this is a question to ask to the chairman and the board. They have all the names of the possible players for our team and all the players, except one, are in Swansea's level when we talk about transfer and salary."

Laudrup said the rumours of unrest within the club are an unwelcome distraction that may derail attempts to sign the players he has targeted.

"It is almost three weeks since we played the last game and everyone is looking forward to receiving some news regarding new players," he said. "Instead, people can read in different papers and media that there are bigger and bigger problems with me, the chairman, the board, my agent or players who will not join Swansea because they are not sure that I will stay."
