Winger interest confirmed
Middlesbrough have confirmed Swansea are in the hunt to sign Marvin Emnes but say they are in no rush to sell.
Former Swans boss Brendan Rodgers was keen on the Dutch winger and now Michael Laudrup is also interested in signing him before Friday's deadline.
An offer has yet to go in for the player but Boro boss Tony Mowbray has hinted he will be allowed to leave the Riverside Stadium if Swansea pay the going rate.
However, he also says the player is tied down to a long-term contract and they are in no rush to cash in.
"Everybody does have his price and I wouldn't say there is nothing in it," said Mowbray. "There have been enquiries for two years for Marvin from Swansea, ever since he went out on loan.
"And yet Marvin has got, I think, three-and-a-half years left on his contract here. There is no reason for us to rush into selling Marvin Emnes. Let's wait and see what the week brings."
