Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers hopes to be busy on transfer deadline day.

The Swans boss says he is still hopeful of adding "one or two" new faces to his squad before the window shuts, but denied reports linking him with moves for Matthew Bates, Adrian Mariappa and Nicky Maynard.

He said: "We made enquiries for a number of players early in the window and, like with many clubs, it has gone quiet, but then we have had feedback on one to two possibilities and we will see.

"There is still a lot of work to do if they are to become permanent signings, but we will see over the next 24 hours and take it from there.

"We have certainly made no bids as yet but we have been given an indication of what the price would be."
