Swansea coach Curtis expecting "vultures" to bid for stars

Swansea City coach Alan Curtis admits they're bracing for offers for their best players.

Michu, Ashley Williams and Michel Vorm have all been linked with moves away from the Liberty Stadium.

"I guess the vultures are going to be lurking above us," said Curtis.

"The fact that the players have done so well means they are attracting the interest of some of the bigger clubs. It's just a fact of life now.

"We've lost managers, we've lost players - we obviously want them to stay but if it happens then we'll just have to deal with it as we normally do.

"There are obviously bigger clubs than us. If it was up to the players they would stay because they enjoy their football, they love the way we play the game.

"But, obviously, if you get some of the real big clubs, then obviously it's going to be difficult for the player to turn it down and for the club to refuse them the right to play for those clubs."
