Swansea boss Michael Laudrup is prepared to wait over talks to extend his existing deal which expires at the end of next season. Swansea are keen to avoid a repeat of the departures of Brendan Rodgers and Roberto Martinez before him, and would like Laudrup to agree a one-year extension to take him through to 2015.

He said: "I think for me the present is more important than the future, we have so many things coming up now and I already have a contract for next season so it is not urgent for me.

"We have some very important things to deal with right now. I am talking to the chairman a lot of times every week and we talk about a lot of things."
