Michael Laudrup has denied that he will be leaving Swansea this summer, BBC Sport reports.

The Dane has been heavily linked with a move away from Swansea, with reports suggesting that he has fallen out with Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins over the clubs transfer budget this summer.

However, Laudrup has moved to play down speculation that he may move away from the club.

“I have repeated it so many times in the last three months. My intention is to stay.” said Laudrup.

One point of contention could be that the club feel that Laudrup’s agent Bayram Tutumlu, is trying to dictate transfer policy with the agent said to be having a role in Ashley Williams potential sale.

The Swansea captain has been linked with moves to Arsenal and Liverpool but Huw Jenkins has reportedly told Tutumlu that his captain is going nowhere.

It is being reported that Jenkins and Laudrup are now talking and the Dane has given his chairman a fresh list of transfer targets that he would like the club to pursue this summer.

Laudrup signed a new contract with the Welsh club in March following a highly successful season where Swansea finished in the top half of the Premier League table and won the League Cup, beating Bradford City at Wembley in February.
