Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup reveals that he rejected offers from Champions League clubs to stay in South Wales this summer.

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup has revealed that he rejected approaches from some big clubs this summer.

The Dane guided the Swans to a League Cup win last season, as well as a ninth-place finish in the Premier League.

He was linked with the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and a host of other clubs during the summer, but always intended to stay at Swansea.

"I've never been close to leaving because I said I would stay this season," Laudrup told Sky Sports News. "It's important to us.

"We still have to consolidate this team, this club and a promise is a promise - that's why I'm here.

"Yes, it's true, there were some approaches from big clubs, even from Champions League clubs, but I said I was going to stay here."

Swansea's captain Ashley Williams recently spoke about how pleased he was with the club's new signings.
