Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup has explained why he's keeping hold of fullback Neil Taylor.

Taylor has seen a £4 million bid from Fulham turned down by Laudrup.

"I always understand when players, if they're not playing regular football, want to go elsewhere. We have two left backs and we have a lot of games to play, we're still in three competitions," said the Dane.

"If we cannot get a good replacement in for Neil then we cannot let him go. We would have to wait and see until the summer."
