Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup admits that the club will listen to offers for Alan Tate, Luke Moore, Kemy Agustien and Leroy Lita.

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup has left four senior players out of the side's pre-season tour of Holland to allow them to find new clubs.

The quartet of Alan Tate, Luke Moore, Kemy Agustien and Leroy Lita have all been transfer-listed by Laudrup, and the former Danish international gave varying reasons for giving permission to each player to leave the Liberty Stadium.

The 49-year-old told the South Wales Evening Post: "Some of them were spoken to in April — Tate knew that we wanted to bring in a different type of centre-back, who can play a little higher with more speed and he said they didn't want to be fourth or fifth choice here.

"And with the forwards, even if we went into pre-season without new strikers, I wouldn't have brought them to Holland.

"There were a lot of things with Kemy last season and it's best for him that he finds a new environment where he can try to play a little more regularly. I think that's best for him."

Swansea spent a club-record fee of £12m on striker Wilfried Bony on Thursday.
