Swansea captain Ashley Williams fears Michael Laudrup could be lured away from the Liberty Stadium this summer, despite signing a new contract, with the Danish manager a reported target for Chelsea.

Laudrup has been a revelation since his appointment to replace Brendan Rodgers, leading Swansea to the first major trophy in their history and establishing the club among the Premier League's top ten.

According to Metro, Laudrup is among the contenders to become the next manager of Chelsea when Rafael Benitez is relieved of his interim duties at Stamford Bridge when the season ends, although Swansea have moved to tie the former Mallorca boss down to a new deal.

Laudrup has extended his stay with the Swans by another season, with his original deal due to expire at the end of the next campaign, but Williams remains concerned that the Dane may be tempted to leave for another job, should a club of Chelsea's stature come calling.

"We’re pleased the gaffer signed the contract. We’ve enjoyed the season working with him," Williams said, as reported by Metro.

"He’s been linked to other teams which shows he’s doing his job properly. That’s normal.

"He signed a new contract and I don’t think any of us knew he was going to do that. It was a nice surprise.

"Can we keep the squad together? Hopefully. We’ve got a good squad here, we get on really well, we enjoy playing.

"I can’t speak for other people or for the future because it’s football.

"We all know the gaffer could get an offer he feels he wants and the club want to take it.

"You never know what could happen. It’s important we all try hard to stick together."
