ABOVE: Michael Laudrup guided Swansea to Capital One Cup glory this season
Bayram is my agent and that's not going to change
MICHAEL LAUDRUP insists he will not walk away from Swansea despite the club severing ties with his agent.
It was feared that the Dane would leave the Liberty Stadium because of it - but he's reiterated his desire to stay at Swansea.
"I have repeated it so many times in the last three months - my intention is to stay," Laudrup told the South Wales Evening Post.
"Bayram is my agent and that's not going to change.
"If the club do not want to work with him, or Bayram does not want to work with them, it's their problem not mine.
"The only thing I care about is to have the best players possible at Swansea who are within range of the economy of the club.
"It will not change my relationship with Bayram one centimetre.
"The only thing I am interested in is having the best players at Swansea within the budget that is possible.
It's understood that the initial disagreement with Tutumlu was over the amount of money available for Laudrup to spend on new players.
But the club were also unhappy at the agent's desire to put forward his own list of proposed transfer targets.
Tutumlu attempted to become involved in the potential sale of defender Ashley Williams too, despite Swansea making it clear they had no intention of selling the Arsenal target.
