Michael Laudrup has been linked with a move to Goodison Park to replace David Moyes in recent weeks, however Laudrup has ensured Swansea City fans that he will remain at the Liberty stadium next season. 

The 48-year-old Dane has ruled out any move away from his current club and described all reports as 'pure speculation'.

Laudrup told reporters: "My intention is to be here. I don't have dreams of going to other clubs, I live in the present."

Laudrup has had an impressive season with Swansea City, he has led his team to the League Cup trophy thus booking a place in the Europa League next season. Furthermore Swansea are also set for a top-half finish in the Premier League, which further strengthens Laudrup's credentials as a capable manager.

Laudrup signed a contract extension with Swansea recently until July 2015, and if Everton want to acquire his services they will have to pay a reported £10m as compensation to prise him from the contract. 

Laudrup further stated: "I haven't spoken to anyone [at Everton], I don't have time I have so much work to do here."

Laudrup's comments were further backed by his agent, Bayram Tutumlu, as he also insisted that Laudrup will remain at Swansea. 

Tutumlu told reporters: "He will not be changing clubs. He likes Swansea and is very settled.

"But he is the manager of Swansea and that will not change. The Swansea fans do not need to worry. He will be there next season.

"People always talk about Michael becoming a coach of other clubs because he has done very well."

Swansea City's chairman has already stated that they have a plan in place if Laudrup decides to leave, yet it is obvious that the fans would want their manager to stay at the Liberty Stadium.
