Swansea play down Graham exit talk

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup.

michael-laudrupSwansea City have denied that striker Danny Graham is heading to Tuesday's Premier League opponents Sunderland before the transfer window closes on Thursday.

The 27-year-old former Middlesbrough and Watford forward reportedly asked to leave the Swans for personal reasons on Monday but chairman Huw Jenkins has rubbished the suggestions.
"At the moment there is no substance to this whatsoever," said Jenkins.
Manager Michael Laudrup added: "If he comes and says he wants to leave and there's a very good offer we'll have to look into it. [But] it could easily happen that we have exactly the same squad in February as we have now."
Graham grabbed 12 Premier League goals for Swansea last season following his £3.5million transfer from Watford but has only found the net three times in the league this term, while Michu, 5.50 to open the scoring against Sunderland, has taken all the headlines.
Graham has often been used from the substitute's bench this term and Laudrup added that the player could leave the Liberty Stadium if the price was right.
He said: "When there is a bid and if that bid is not even close to what the club wants, then there's nothing to do, even if the player wants to leave, he has to stay.
"I haven't read anything official or in any newspaper or on television where Danny has said he wants to leave, that means he must want to stay and probably he will."
Michel Vorm is set to return in goal for Swansea, who are 11.00 to beat Sunderland 2-1 on Tuesday with Graham available at 7.50 to open the scoring.
