Laudrup: Tottenham could suffer from international break

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup is set to begin talks over a new contract with the Premier League club, according to his agent.

The Dane’s current deal runs until the end of the 2013-14 season, and Swans chairman Huw Jenkins has expressed his confidence that the 48-year-old will ignore speculation linking him with a possible move to Chelsea or former club Real Madrid to extend his stay.

Laudrup has guided the Welsh club to an impressive seventh-place standing and a first-ever Capital One Cup final since replacing Brendan Rodgers in June.

The manager insisted last week that he was in no rush to enter talks over his contract, saying: “the present is more important than the future” - but his representative, Bayram Tutumlu, has confirmed that Swansea is hoping to extend his current terms.

"Yes, Swansea has a strong interest in extending Michael Laudrup's contract," Tutumlu told Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet. "In the coming days, we will meet with Swansea and discuss the possibility of an extension."
