Swansea City winger Wayne Routledge says he can fill the void left by Scott Sinclair's imminent move to Manchester City.

Laudrup described he and fellow flier Nathan Dyer as "poison for defenders".

Routledge told the South Wales Echo: "It's a big compliment coming from someone like him.

"The manager definitely knew about taking on defenders. I didn't need to go on You Tube to see what he could do; I remember watching him growing up.

"And today he's passing on bits and pieces which is great - and for him to say something like that means we must be doing our jobs right.

"I enjoy playing the game and to play with freedom we do in this team with the way we keep the ball and make chances is a pleasure to play in.

"Hopefully if I keep playing like this and if the team keeps putting in performances like we have done so far, I will keep my place."
