Michael Laudrup To Sign New Swansea Dealby Jack Kitson / 15 February 2013, 10:18Tweet
Michael Laudrup is set to sign a new deal at Swansea following an impressive start to life at the Liberty Stadium. Many expected the Swans to struggle after the summer departure of Brendan Rodgers but since Laudrup's arrival they have in fact prospered. His current contract runs out at the end of next season but negotiations over a new deal will reportedly take place in the next few days.
With 26 matches played Swansea are 7th in the Premier League and also through to the Capital One Cup Final, where they will face League Two side Bradford Sunday week. The Swans have continued to win plaudits for their attractive style of play, with summer signing Michu turning out to be one of the players of the season.
They have recorded some memorable away wins at Arsenal (league) and Chelsea (cup) and will now look to claim a major scalp at Rodgers' new home Anfield. If Swansea win they will move four points clear of the Reds and put themselves in a great position to not only finish in the top 10 but to end the season ahead of Rodgers' new side.
