Swansea boss Rodgers confirms plans for Stoke striker Gudjohnsen

Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers admits he's eager to land Stoke City striker Eidur Gudjohnsen.

Swansea will step up their interest in the Icelandic international with a formal approach .

Rodgers, who worked with Gudjohnsen while on the coaching staff at Stamford Bridge, said: "I will need to make the call to Tony (Pulis) and see what develops.

"Eidur will want to play at the highest level he can, but I know his ability and what stage he is at in his career.

"He is pure quality and would be fantastic for this club. He has a great mentality and works hard in training.

"Only 18 months ago, he was with Barcelona so he would be great at this level.

"Eidur is still a Stoke player and would be a long shot for a club like us. There are lots of things that would need to happen before someone like him could come in.

"If there is any way we can do a deal for a player like that then I would always look to see what we can create."
