Swansea boss Laudrup plays down Villa transfer chances

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup has played down talk of a deal for Barcelona striker David Villa.

Laudrup is a big fan of Villa, who has scored 37 goals in two years at Barcelona, but distanced himself from making a move for him.

The 48-year-old said: "There have been a lot of rumours, but the only Villa coming to Swansea is Aston Villa. He is a fantastic player, but unfortunately I don't think he will be coming to Swansea. In fact, although I haven't spoken to (Andoni) Zubizarreta or (Tito) Vilanova, I think he will stay at Barcelona."
