Duo set for future talks
The futures of Swansea duo Scott Sinclair and Joe Allen will become a lot clearer this week when they return from Team GB duty.
Both players have been heavily linked with moves away from the Liberty Stadium during their participation in the Olympic games and Allen in particular looks to be heading for the exit door. Some reports claim a deal is already in place for him to join Liverpool but boss Michael Laudrup has yet to speak to him face-to-face and that could happen later on today. Allen is thought to be keen on a move to Anfield but nothing will be decided until the duo have spoken. The future of Sinclair is less uncertain but reports over the weekend linked him with a move to Manchester City, while Liverpool have again been linked, along with Fulham. However the player still has a year to run on his contract and it sounds as though he is looking forward to working with his new manager. "I'm going back and I'm sure I'm going to learn a hell of a lot from the new manager," he said. "He was a legend back in his time. When I get back I'll talk to the manager and we'll sit down and discuss it (contract)."
