Monk says Swansea signing plans far from over

Swansea City boss Garry Monk is keen to add to his squad before the market shuts.

Swansea City boss Garry Monk is keen to add to his squad before the market shuts.

Lukasz Fabianski, Bafetimbi Gomis, Jefferson Montero and Marvin Emnes have been recruited, but Monk admits he could do with 'two or three players' before the transfer window closes on September 1.

Monk takes no notice, though, of the pundits who claim Swansea will struggle this term.

"We've been written off pretty much every year since I've been at the club," he said. "It's no difference to us - it's water off a duck's back.

"No-one will put me under more pressure than myself. I know what I want to do and where I want things to go.

"If things go as planned, then great. If it doesn't, then the obvious is the obvious. But in terms of what's been said, they don't see what we do every day."
