Slovenian keeper Gregor Zabret, who was on trial at Swansea City in January, is more determined than ever to forge a career in England.
The 17-year old has already made 14 appearances for Slovenian side Domzale and he spent a week in South Wales last month hoping to impress Michael Laudrup.
"I was there one week and firstly I trained with the first team. When Michael Laudrup began with preparations for the Chelsea clash I moved into the reserve team so I had quite busy days.
"For now I know what is my reality and the Slovenian league is a good start for young players like me. We are working quite good here." He told Slovenian newspaper Ekipa.
"But what I saw motivates me even more and since I was a young lad I dreamed about playing in England. Maybe my dreams will one day become true if I will work hard enough."
