Sky Sports suggests that Danny Graham has asked Swansea City for a transfer.

The 27-year old striker has handed in a request for personal reasons as he looks to move back home to England's Northeast with both Sunderland and Newcastle United showing interest.

Swans boss Michael Laudrup has indicated that the club would be prepared to let Graham go for the right offer and now it appears as though the player wants out after experiencing a difficult time under the Dane who has started him on the bench for a lot of the campaign thus far.
