Swansea City are preparing an approach to Michael Laudrup.

The Daily Mail says Laudrup is the new frontrunner for the Swansea City manager's post.

The former Real Mallorca boss has been in contention for the position since Brendan Rodgers left for Liverpool but, contrary to reports, was ranked below Wigan No 2 Graeme Jones on the Swansea wishlist.

However, with hopes of persuading Jones fading, a move for Laudrup is expected.
