London: Michael Laudrup intends to stay on as Swansea City manager next season and is in discussions over a new contract, chairman Huw Jenkins revealed on Tuesday.

Laudrup has enjoyed an excellent debut season at the Swansea helm and on Sunday led the south Wales club to the first major title in their history after a 5-0 thrashing of fourth-tier Bradford City in the League Cup final.

Players and staff celebrated the achievement on a bus parade through Swansea city centre on Tuesday and Jenkins used the occasion to ward off potential suitors for Laudrup, whose current contract expires in 2014.
