Five Reasons To Focus

Danny Graham: A powerful centre forward who more than paid back his £3.5 million transfer fee hitting 14 goals in all competitions last season.

Scott Sinclair: Reported target for Manchester City, Sinclair has been key to Swansea`s success over the last two seasons scoring an impressive 35 goals in 90 appearances from midfield.

Nathan Dyer: The diminutive winger won Player Of The Year during their promotion season to the Premier League and continued to impress in the top flight. His pace and trickery caused many defenders problems last season.

Michael Laudrup: New manager syndrome. Swansea were dealt a huge blow losing Brendan Rodgers to Liverpool this summer, who did a terrific job at the Liberty. Laudrup is an unknown quantity in England and could be a surprise success.

Michel Vorm: The agile Dutch International had a superb season last year and was the base to a very solid spine for Swansea. Vorm kept 13 clean sheets in 37 league appearances.
