Swansea have not bid for Wolves striker Kevin Doyle - Laudrup
MICHAEL Laudrup has insisted Swansea City have not bid for Kevin Doyle amid continuing speculation linking the Wolves striker with a move to the Liberty.
Swansea are keen to add one more forward to their squad before the transfer window closes, and Wolves would be keen to get Irish international Doyle off the wage bill following their relegation to League One.
Laudrup did not dismiss the idea that Doyle could be on his list of possible targets, but flatly denied making an offer for the ex-Reading man.
"I don't want to go into names," said the Swansea manager.
"There have been so many names linked with us that if we signed only half of them, we would have 36 players.
"But a striker is a priority because goals are so important.
"Signing Wilfried Bony was great, but we still need a different kind of striker as well because hopefully we will play many games this season."
Laudrup wants a replacement for Luke Moore, who played his part last season but has now been told he can leave.
And it emerged last night that the former West Brom man is set to hold talks with Turkish top-flight side Elazigspor.
"Swansea have given us permission to fly to Turkey and open talks," Moore's agent, Peter Morrison, said.
"We will be travelling in the next 24 hours and will discuss the options available to Luke."
