Laudrup extends his deal with Swansea

Laudrup extends his deal with Swansea

Swansea boss Michael Laudrup signed a new one-year deal with the Welsh side.

The Dane has put an end to the transfer speculations linking with a move to Real Madrid, Chelsea and Manchester City, by extending his deal with Swansea, which will keep him at the club until summer 2015.

Swansea seem to be thriving under Laudrup, having won their first major trophy in a spectacular fashion by thrashing Bradford 5-0 in Capital One Cup final at Wembley. The win allows the Swans to play in Europe next season. They are also sitting comfortably in the eighth place in Premier League table, which means they will continue playing in the top-flight for a third consecutive season.

Laudrup said he is delighted to extend his deal with Swansea: “We’ve started something this season that I want to continue. “I know there has been a lot of speculation (about my future), but I’ve always said that I am happy here and I never had any doubts I would stay. I am delighted to sign the new deal and I’m already really looking forward to next season. I hope there will be some very exciting things happening with the team and with the club in Europe.”
