£10m star bid denied
Swansea boss Michael Laudrup says there has been no approach from Liverpool for midfielder Joe Allen.
Former Swans boss Brendan Rodgers has been linked with a £10million swoop for Allen despite a supposed agreement with chairman Huw Jenkins that he would not return to the Liberty Stadium to sign any of the current squad. However Laudrup says Liverpool have yet to make a move and hopes one is not forthcoming as the 22-year-old is in his plans for the new campaign and beyond. "I haven't heard anything from Liverpool," Laudrup revealed. "If it comes to more than rumours then I am sure I will talk to the chairman about it, but it is a part of football. "You have to deal with it, talk to the player and see what he wants. We all have our own positions, the manager, the club, the player and there are lot of things we have to look at. I want him to stay here because I think he is very important for the team, but we will have to deal with that when if becomes something more than rumours."
