Swansea Boss Hopes Personal Commitment Will Attract Players


Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup is hoping that his commitment to the South Wales club will attract more talented transfer targets in the summer.

Laudrup signed a new two year contract at the Liberty Stadium after he lead Swansea to their first major trophy win in the Capital One Cup at the end of last month.

The Swans will now compete in the Europa League next season and this factor combined with the fact Laudrup is set to stay could attract players at the end of the season.

The former Real Mallorca boss has fully utilised the European market in his first season in the Premier League with signing of the season Michu just one of his impressive captures for the Swans.

The Danish boss is hoping that his commitment to the club could be a huge factor in players joining Swansea next season and he hopes to once again explore the Spanish market for top talent.

“The contract is for the next two seasons, but the most important thing for me was at least people knew I was going to be here next season,” Laudrup told Sky Sports.

“It’s important to give out the right signal that I want to stay, so I extended for one year.

“It could be a factor in the transfer market particularly if players come from certain countries, like Spain.”
