Huw Jenkins insists his relationship with Michael Laudrup hasn't been adversely affected by a summer disagreement over transfer policy.
Rather than being able to focus on strengthening their squad ahead of a season which will include the club's first foray into the Europa League, the Liberty Stadium outfit have had to cope with a falling out between Jenkins and Laudrup's long-time representative Bayram Tutumlu.
The row put 49-year-old Laudrup's future at the club in doubt, particularly when Swansea decided to stop dealing with Tutumlu, after he attempted to broker a deal to sell defender Ashley Williams against the club's wishes.
But there has been more positive news to report in recent days with the club having tabled a number of bids for players targeted by their Danish boss.
Midfielder Jose Canas and defender Jordi Amat have arrived from Real Betis and Espanyol respectively, while a club record £10.2million deal for Vitesse Arnhem striker Wilfried Bony is moving ever nearer.
And Jenkins is adamant he always believed Laudrup would remain in charge.
"Michael Laudrup has made his feelings known that he wanted to stay here and we have been looking to bring in five or six players," Jenkins said.
"We've worked hard during the last month or two with a lot of offers in for a lot of players, we are hoping to bring in one or two of those main targets, which have been publicised quite a bit but we will hopefully land them.
"My relationship with Michael Laudrup has always been very good, that has never been in doubt."
