Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup believes Jazz Richards isn't ready for the Premier League.

The fullback, currently on-loan at Crystal Palace, penned a new deal with Swans last week.

"Maybe Jazz isn't good enough to play in the Premier League at the moment, but maybe with another one or two years' experience he can come back and do well for us," Laudrup said.

"He is a young player with potential, and that's why he has got a new contract.

"He is now out playing regularly and I think that's very important to help him develop."
