Swansea manager looking to hold on to Swansea striker Danny Graham.
Swansea manager Michael Laudrup has moved to dismiss talks of striker Danny Graham leaving the club, according to Sky Sports.
The forward scored the 87th minute equaliser for the Swansea this weekend in their 2-2 FA Cup draw with Arsenal to bring his recent tally to three goals in three games.
The player has found his first team opportunities limited this season however, as Laudrup has typically preferred to play Spanish forward Michu as a lone striker.
That has led to speculation in recent weeks that the player might be on the verge of leaving the Welsh club, with a number of sides, including Norwich and Reading, reportedly showing an interest.
But Laudrup has moved to reaffirm the striker’s future at the club.
‘We have not had official bids for Danny. He is playing well right now so obviously he is important for us, because he is scoring goals.’
Swansea have been linked with a number of forwards in recent weeks however, including Barcelona striker David Villa, so it remains to be seen whether the front man will still be appearing for the Swans come February.
Graham has previously declared his intention to fight for a place at the club but it is thought that if the player’s current good form goes unrecognised by the Swansea management, the player will seek to ply his trade elsewhere.
