Swansea's Laudrup expects to make winter signings to cover Michu, Dyer, Vorm

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup says he is more than likely to dip into the transfer kitty in order to bring in some cover this winter.

The Swans are currently without goalkeeper Michel Vorm, winger Nathan Dyer and star forward Michu who are all battling various injuries which may force Laudrup into the January market in order to bring in reinforcements.

"It is (tough) but that's why we have a squad," Laudrup told Sky Sports News. "We're not having 11 or 13 players only - we have a squad and I think we are using everybody. We've done that already for half the season so far.

"But it is true right now number-wise it is a little bit tight we only have 19 players. Right now we have two players out for six or a little more weeks so we may have to see in the market in January but for the next two or three games we have these 19 players and I have a lot of confidence in this squad.

"You have to wait and see what happens. Two weeks ago I was asked about the transfer window and I said maybe we don't need to sign anyone and in seven days we lost two players for several weeks in Michu and Dyer.

"So things can change quickly in football let's see what happens in the next three, four games and then when we come to January we will take some decisions."
