No Mourinho issue for Monk

Swansea manager Garry Monk insists there is no problem between him and Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho ahead of their Barclays Premier League summit meeting on Saturday.

Mourinho failed to shake hands with Monk after a controversial Liberty Stadium contest between the two clubs last April, which Chelsea won 1-0.

It's not a big deal for myself.

I'm probably not the only one who he hasn't shaken hands with.

I like to shake hands and finish well but I respect him highly, he's a top manager, a very respected person in football and in that bracket of the very elite.

– Garry Monk

Ayew to take flight?

Swansea are being linked with Ghana winger Andre Ayew, but that he's also said to be interesting Villa, Hull and QPR (of course).

There is work being done at Cardiff too, with the club set to complete the signing of centre-half Bruno Ecuele Manga from Lorient for a fee in the region of £5m. That may see Mark Hudson leave the club, possibly to either Fulham or Leeds.

Swansea midfielder Ki Sung-yueng has revealed he might have left the club had Michael Laudrup stayed as manager.

Ki signed a new four-year deal on Thursday as the South Korea international completed a remarkable reversal in fortunes at the Liberty Stadium.

"I'm not sure if I would be here if he (Laudrup) was," Ki said ahead of the visit of West Brom on Saturday.

"If I have the chance to play maybe I stay, if not maybe I have to look at another opportunity because I just want to play in midfield.

"I don't want to stay on the bench every game."
