Meade admits Laudrup influence in Swansea move

Former Arsenal defender Jernade Meade admits Michael Laudrup's presence at Swansea City convinced him about moving to the Liberty.

The defender, who has signed a one-year deal at the Liberty Stadium, will initially train with the under-21s as he looks to force his way into contention for Michael Laudrup's first-team plans.

"My aim is to start impressing in the Under-21s team and hopefully give Michael Laudrup another option at left-back for the first team.

"He was a great player and the chance to learn from him is a massive opportunity for me.

"The manager is not afraid to give youngsters a chance to prove themselves either. You only have to look at what Ben Davies achieved last season to realise that."
