Swans boss calls for patience

Fresh from securing promotion into the Premier League, the Swans

have been linked with a lengthy list of potential signings this

summer. Rodgers insists most of the rumours have no substance to

them, with the majority of players he is reported to be in the

market for not in his plans. He is, however, looking to bolster his

ranks during the current transfer window and has revealed that he

is waiting to hear back on a number of bids. “I am out of the

country on holiday at the moment, but I am on the phone

constantly,” Rodgers told the South Wales Evening Post. “I think we

have seen already that we are going to a new level in the Premier

League in terms of gossip and rumour. “Agents are working hard to

try and move players and unfortunately that’s what you read about

in a lot of the media nowadays. “We have been linked with all sorts

of keepers, for instance, who are just not in my thinking. “There

is a whole media circus which comes with being in the Premier

League, and it’s been incredible reading about some of the players

we are supposed to have made bids for. “I just hope our fans can be

patient. “I have spoken to players and we have bids in for players

and there will be movement between now and the end of August.”

Rodgers, who has drafted in Danny Graham and Steven Caulker this

summer but lost Darren Pratley and Dorus de Vries, added: “I have

had discussions with managers and with players that I like. “We are

waiting to see how things develop now. “There are lots and lots of

players who are interested in joining us and over the course of the

summer there will be signings.”
