Laudrup expects to finalise Ki swoop
Swansea manager Michael Laudrup expects the club-record signing of Ki Sung-Yeung from Celtic to go through on Friday.
The Swans have agreed a fee of around £6million with the Scottish champions for the South Korea international, who helped his country secure a bronze medal at the Olympics.
The 23-year-old is due to have his medical and finalise personal terms on his switch to south Wales.
Ki's agent admitted the player had been impressed by Swansea's opening day 5-0 trouncing of QPR last weekend, and Laudrup is looking forward to bringing in his seventh summer signing and strengthening his midfield following Joe Allen's departure to Liverpool.
He said: "The contract is not signed yet. I would like to wait before everything is signed and sealed but the deal should go through, he is an important player for us to have in the midfield.
"We have lost Joe Allen so it is important for the strength of the squad to have a player like that, if we sign him then we'll all be happy."
