Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup has praised Danny Graham's attitude and revealed that the pair will hold talks to discuss his future this week.
Graham has struggled to start regularly under Laudrup, primarily due to the form of Spanish forward Michu.
Laudrup believes that Graham is back to his potent best and is reluctant to let last-season's top scorer leave the club, with Sunderland favourites to sign the striker.
He told reporters: "In the last couple of games we have seen the Danny we saw at the end of pre-season.
"Not just his scoring, but he is making the right runs when we have the ball, and he looks fit and confident and that is positive for us.
"I am talking to the players who have not played regularly, but it does not mean I am telling them they can leave."
Reading, Newcastle United and Norwich City are also thought to have a firm interest in adding Graham to their ranks before the transfer window closes.
