Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup says he's "excited" about his squad.

The Dane welcomed Wilfried Bony to Swansea last week.

He told the South Wales Echo: “The levels have been really good because there is a lot of competition in the team. Everybody wants to play and it’s good for everybody that the strength of our squad is that much better.

“I am excited and feel we have a very strong squad where I have a lot of possibilities – and when we start the competitions we have so many options which is great for any manager.

“We also have players who can play more than one position – and that is important because hopefully we will play more games than last season, depending on what we do in August with one or hopefully two successful rounds in the Europa League.

“But, in general, right now it seems we are stronger and that means we have players competing inside the squad."
