The arrival of Real Betis midfielder Alejandro Pozuelo is expected to ease tension at Swansea City between the board and manager Michael Laudrup

The Daily Mail says the Dane's relationship with the Swansea hierarchy has soured since the end of the season because of his frustration with the club's lack of early progress in the transfer market.

But Jose Canas's switch from Betis earlier this month, coupled with what looks like the imminent arrival of Pozuelo, will ease the tensions, which reached boiling point last week when the club severed ties with Laudrup's agent, Bayram Tutumlu.
