Laudrup looks to resolve Joe Allen’s future

Swansea boss Michael Laudrup has stated that he will sit down with Joe Allen in the near future to resolve the player’s future.

The Wales international has been the subject of a number of transfer bids from Liverpool, as former manager Brendan Rodgers wants to bring the talented midfielder to Anfield.

However, after Allen is settled back at the Liberty Stadium after competing for Team GB this summer at the Olympics the Dane intends to speak with his star player.

“Joe Allen showed up today at the training ground, he did not train but I had a small chat with him, but we did not touch the subject right now,” Laudrup is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

“I did not think it was the proper moment, but we will have to talk about that with the player to see what he wants so we can say something official, otherwise the rumours will go on until August 31, which is not in anyone’s interest.

“On Wednesday he will be back in training with the other two guys who have been at the Olympics and then we will have some talks so it does not go on until the last day of the transfer window,” he concluded.
