Laudrup names 23-man squad for USA tour

Swans boss Michael Laudrup has confirmed his 23-man squad for the pre-season tour to America.
New signings Chico, Jonathan de Guzman and Michu are all included in the 12-day touring party that will take in games against Colorado Rapids (Denver), Ventura Fusion and San Jose Earthquakes (California).
The squad will depart London Heathrow Airport on Sunday and arrive back on Thursday, August 2.
“We have had two weeks of training and the players are working very hard,” said Laudrup. “They are very motivated, which is great.”
The Swans boss added he is very excited with the arrival of Spanish midfielder Michu from Rayo Vallecano.
“He scored 16 goals in the top Spanish league, and he can play as an offensive midfielder or as a second striker,” he added.
“To get someone who scores a lot of goals normally costs a lot of money, so we are very happy with this (£2m) deal.”
