Despite reports that Danny Graham wants to leave Swansea City, Michael Laudrup has insisted he won't be allowed to leave the club on the cheap, despite rumours that he wants to return to the North East for personal reasons.

The 27-year-old striker has been a key player for Swansea this season, with seven goals from 22 appearances. 

This run of good form has attracted interest from several clubs, including Norwich.

However, Graham has been strongly linked with a move to Sunderland, with the striker preferring the Black Cats as they are close to his hometown of Gateshead.

While the reasons for move have not been made public, Swansea are playing down the speculation that the former Middlesbrough forward is keen to leave the Liberty Stadium. 

Swans' chairman Huw Jenkins told Sky Sports: "At the moment there is no substance to this whatsoever."

While Graham has not handed in a transfer request, manager Laudrup explained that no offers have come in that meets their valuation of the player, and without a sufficient bid, Graham will see out his contract at Swansea.

Laudrup added: "We have had some offers for him.

"When there is a bid and if that bid is not even close to what the club wants, then there's nothing to do, even if the player wants to leave, he has to stay.

"It could easily happen that we have exactly the same squad in February as we have now."
