Michael Laudrup has opened talks to succeed Brendan Rodgers as the new Swansea boss after missing out on Graeme Jones, according to reports.
The Daily Mirror claims that the former Barcelona and Denmark midfielder has spoken with Swans chairman Huw Jenkins, and is set to fly out for further talks in Cyprus, where the Welshman is on currently on holiday.
After contract negotiations broke down with Wigan number two Jones, Jenkins has reportedly turned to the Dane to take over the reins at the Liberty Stadium.
Laudrup has earned praise for his passing style of football in Spain during his spells with Getafe and Mallorca, which will please the Swans' faithful, who will be looking for the team to continue where they left off come the start of the season.
