Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers is calm ahead of the looming January market.

Rodgers is not worried that their impressive form may attract the unwanted attention of their Premier League rivals.

"I have to be honest, I have no concerns whatsoever," said the Northern Irishman, who says he has not had any enquiries for any members of his squad.

"I am relaxed, all the players here understand that this is a real good fit for them. We are a team really riding high on confidence, we are a group that has grown.

"For the likes of a Joe Allen, he will look at himself and know there are not too many better places he could be in European football to develop his game.

"Joe is coming off his first season playing regularly in the Championship, and he is now a key figure in a team that suits his style perfectly.

"Joe is going to be a big talent but I have no concerns, he is an intelligent lad who understands where he is at in his career and at 21 he has got 12-13 years left ahead of him.

"Our good players could play in any team but everything in life is about timing, it's very important and the players are really enjoying it here."
