Football - Laudrup braced for transfers to go "nuts"

Swansea manager Michael Laudrup has reiterated he has not received any offers for Danny Graham, but accepts anything could happen during the mad scramble at the end of the transfer window.

Swansea's stunning 2-0 Capital One Cup semi-final first leg win at Chelsea was the latest in a string of impressive performances that have put several of Laudrup's players in the spotlight.

That has led to speculation linking 16-goal forward Michu and striker Graham, who were on the scoresheet in midweek, with moves away from the Liberty Stadium.

Laudrup has made it clear Michu will not be leaving, but is set to hold talks with Graham, who has been persistently linked with Reading and Sunderland, over his future.

"We have not had an official offer from a club for us to say yes or no to. We have not got that," Laudrup said.

"Danny is a good player, he is scoring goals now and we are in the transfer window.

"But it is the same at other clubs. My experience from when I was in Spain is there are a lot of talks and rumours in the first three and a half weeks (of the window) and a few things get done.

"But then in the last few days or even in the final 10 hours, everything goes nuts.

"It is like a final sale at the shops so I think it will be the same here, a lot of rumours and talks and then things will get done in the final four or five days."
