Swansea star rules out January move
Swansea City forward Danny Graham has rubbished reports linking him with a January move away from the Liberty Stadium.
Graham has been overshadowed by summer arrival Michu this season and has found himself on the bench in recent weeks.
The North-East born striker was a revelation last season for the impressive Swans as he netted 14 times to become their top goalscorer under Brendan Rodgers.
Just three goals so far this term though has cast doubt over his long term stay in South Wales and clubs such as Aston Villa and Sunderland have been linked with a possible January move for the 27-year-old.
Like many players at the Liberty Stadium, Graham has adapted well to Premier League life after his £3.5million move from Watford 18 months ago but new boss Michael Laudrup doesn’t see him as a key player.
Despite dropping down the pecking order, Graham sees no reason to walk away from Swansea in the new year.
“I don’t see a reason to leave,” Graham told SkySports.
“I don’t know where these rumours come from. I can’t say enough times on Twitter about them.
“But the gaffer hasn’t said he doesn’t want me here so I don’t see a reason to be looking elsewhere.
“Don’t get me wrong, I don’t like sitting on the bench and just picking up money, I want to be playing.
“But the gaffer hasn’t said he doesn’t want me and that is probably the only time I will go – if the gaffer says we have accepted a bid.”
