A DISAGREEMENT over transfer funds is threatening to disrupt Swansea's summer plans, but manager Michael Laudrup is expected still to be in charge of the club next season.

The friction between chairman Huw Jenkins, and Laudrup (pictured) and his agent Bayram Tutumlu, is understood to centre around the amount of money Swansea are prepared to spend on new signings, and there have been suggestions the Dane could leave the Liberty Stadium. It is understood Laudrup has become frustrated at the lack of progress made in securing some of his summer transfer targets.

Jenkins and Tutumlu are expected to hold further talks on the issue, with a rapid resolution needed, but Laudrup is expected to remain in charge next term.
