Today's media round up

30th January 2013

With just nine, the Swans continue to have conceded the fewest away goals in the Premier League after the goalless draw at the Stadium of Light. Swansea's defensive performances away from home have seen them lose only four times on the road this season and has set them up perfectly going into the final four months. The press have spoken briefly regarding matters on the pitch in recent times, however, with the January transfer window about to close, all the focus is on those last minute deals. Today, the South Wales Evening Post gave their interpretation on Michael Laudrup's post match reaction, mainly regarding the future of Danny Graham. The Daily Mail have linked a summer move from Pep Guardiola for the Swans' Spanish centre back Chico Flores. Finally, BBC Sport look at some of York City's signings included Swansea's Curtis Obeng.
 
South Wales Evening Post:

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup gears up for transfer deadline day.


Michael Laudrup admitted he had no idea how deadline day would unfold for Swansea City as he paid tribute to his players after their goalless draw at Sunderland. The Swansea manager insisted he does not know what the future holds for Danny Graham amid strong interest from the Black Cats and a number of other clubs.
And he said he was unable to give any clues on whether Swansea will bring anyone else in before tomorrow night's deadline - because he is not sure himself.

"I really don't know whether we will sign anyone," said Laudrup.
"Sometimes as managers we have to be like politicians, but sometimes we just don't know what is going to happen. I cannot say we won't sign anyone and then something changes, because then you will ask me what I was talking about.
"And I cannot say we will sign someone because as you have seen already in this window, things can change very quickly.
"It's a lot easier for me to say that I will talk about it when the window closes."

EXCLUSIVE: Pep plundering the Premier League... Swansea's Chico lined up to join Suarez at Bayern
By Riath Al-samarrai


Pep Guardiola is considering a shock move to sign Swansea City defender Chico Flores when he takes over at Bayern Munich in the summer.
The former Barcelona boss is a huge fan of the eccentric centre-half and in 2008 signed him on loan from Cadiz for Barcelona B. He was keen to take Chico with him to the senior team when he was promoted later that year, but could not reach a deal with Cadiz.

Guardiola has stayed in contact with the 25-year-old and Sportsmail understands he spoke to him as recently as last week, with a source close to both parties claiming a bid could follow soon after he takes the reins at the Allianz Arena from Jupp Heynckes in July.

York City sign Swansea City defender Curtis Obeng


York City have signed Swansea City full-back Curtis Obeng on a one-month loan deal.
The 23-year-old joined the Swans from Wrexham last season but is yet to make his debut for the Premier League side.
He spent two months on loan with Fleetwood earlier this campaign, making six appearances for the Cod Army.
Obeng is the Minstermen's second signing in as many days after Derry striker David McDaid joined for an undisclosed fee on Tuesday.
