Middlesbrough's on-loan striker Danny Graham says he was surprised that his former club, Swansea City, had parted company with manager Michael Laudrup.
Graham spent just over six months playing under Laudrup at Swansea before moving to Sunderland in January 2013.
Things hadn't really gone to plan for Danny Graham since his return to the North East just over a year ago.
The striker signed for Sunderland on transfer deadline day in January 2013, but quickly fell out of favour at the Stadium of Light and has spent the last six months on loan at Hull City.
However, the 28-year-old is now on loan at Middlesbrough, the club where he began his professional career.
Middlesbrough striker Danny Graham says he's "delighted" to back at the club after completing a deadline day loan move from Sunderland.
The 28-year-old began his professional career at Boro in 2003. He'll now spend the rest of the season on loan at the Riverside.
Former Swansea player, and Gateshead-born, Danny Graham joined Sunderland last week on transfer deadline day for five million pounds.
It hasn't always been an easy ride for the 27-year old striker.
He has had to fight his way to the top and he's well aware he faces a battle for hearts and minds on Wearside.

Danny Graham has insisted the boo boys never made him think twice about his move to Sunderland.
The 27-year-old was jeered by sections of the home support when he came on as a second-half substitute in Swansea's 0-0 Barclays Premier League draw at the Stadium of Light on January 29, two days before he completed his five million pound switch to the Black Cats.
Graham grew up supporting Sunderland's arch rivals Newcastle and has made no secret of his affiliation to the Magpies, but that all appeared to have been forgotten when he made his debut in last Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Reading.
