Swansea City have sacked manager Michael Laudrup with the club sitting in 12th place in the Premier League table.

The 49-year-old coach won the Capital One Cup with the Swans last season, but has now been replaced by club-captain Garry Monk and coach Alan Curtis for the foreseeable future.

Manchester United are preparing a summer swoop for Newcastle United midfielder Cheick Tiote, according to reports.

Red Devils boss David Moyes has identified the Ivorian international as the man he wants to replace Michael Carrick.

And finally, Barcelona boss Tata Martino has insisted that the La Liga title remains in his side's hands, despite watching his team lose to Valencia this past weekend.

The Catalans now trail league leaders Atletico Madrid by three points, but Martino is confident that his side are in control of the situation.
