City have made an offer for the 23-year-old, believed to be around the £5million mark, but Laudrup says his omission for victory over West Ham United.
He said: "Last week after the game (against QPR) I said it was no problem bringing him into the squad. He did a good job, he came off the bench and he scored.
"There are a lot of things going on around Scott and I spoke with him and we decided it was better for everyone that he did not participate at all in the game.
"We know things can move fast in this game but we will wait until Monday to see where things stand. We know it could go on until Friday evening.
"If he is still here after that he will be in the squad next Saturday, if he is not, he is not.
"There is a lot of interest in Scott. I really don't know if he will be here after Friday but everything is possible. It is possible he stays, it is possible he leaves."
