Swansea have made a lot of signings in several areas of the pitch and it was expected that they would be selling a couple of players in order to balance the books. Manager Michael Laudrup, though, has revealed that the club has not revealed any bids for its players.

Swansea will be taking part in a major cup final after a long time.
