Swansea manager Michael Laudrup was coy over speculation linking him with a move for Newcastle winger Gabriel Obertan after watching his side's 4-2 pre-season win over Blackpool.
Laudrup revealed on Monday he is closing in on another couple of additions to his squad, saying one deal in particular was not too far away from completion. As well as Obertan, Valencia's Pablo Hernandez and Hannover's Didier Ya Konan have also been mentioned as targets for the Dane.
But when Obertan's name was put to him, Laudrup said: "I can only say this - speculation about players coming in, I don't want to comment on that. It is better for me to say I don't comment on rumours, I can comment on things about our players as it is different. When something is near or is done then you can ask me all you want."
