Today's media round-up

12th April 2013

With a weekends break from action, we look to see what's happening elsewhere around the club as we reach the business end of the season. With the transfer window not opening until june, we are already seeing a new face at the club in the form of ex-Manchester United winger, Kenji Gorre. Also, the South Wales Evening Post reports on how Ben Davies's impressive start to life in the first team could see him switch roles in the future.

Michael Laudrup reckons Swansea City star Ben Davies could move position.

Michael Laudrup reckons left-back sensation Ben Davies could be a future star in central defence.
Davies has enjoyed a spectacular breakthrough season at Swansea City having been thrust into the first team after Neil Taylor shattered his ankle back in September. With Taylor now closing in on a comeback, questions are being raised about how Laudrup will keep his two Welsh international full-backs happy.

"In the future, my personal opinion is that Ben can be a good left-footed centre-back," Laudrup said.
"Maybe in some people's minds over here he lacks a little bit of height for that position, but I think in time he can play there."
"He is getting stronger in the air and physically he is getting stronger as well."
"And left-footed centre-backs are hard to find. Look how many sides play with two right-footed centre-backs - we are one of them."And the Swansea manager has suggested that moving Davies into a central role could be one solution."

Ex-United winger Gorre signs for Swans after successful trial.

Swansea trialist Kenji Gorre, 18, has signed a contract with the Welsh Capital One Cup holders.
The winger had been on Manchester United's books and is the son of former Ajax, Huddersfield Town and Barnsley midfielder Dean.

The Manchester United club website described him as: "A talented individual, he is able to work his magic on either flank and likes to run at defenders"
"A brilliant strike against Wolves in February (2012) opened his account for the Reds at Under-18 level and emerged as a contender for MUTV's Goal of the Month competition."
