Michael Laudrup is ready to leave Swansea City at the end of next season.

The People says the great Dane, who signed a new deal last month taking him up to June 2015, will lead his Capital One Cup winners into the Europa League next season.

But he is already looking to leave at the end of that campaign and seek a new challenge - and the Swans are aware of his intentions as they start planning ahead.

Laudrup has been a breath of fresh air at the Liberty Stadium, but a source close to him said: "Michael wants to see the Swansea job through but it is known within the club that he will only be staying for two seasons and then going somewhere else. He is that type of guy."
