Swansea fans assured by boss Rodgers new faces on the way

Brendan Rodgers is confident Premiership new-boys Swansea will make the necessary signings over the summer. The Swans have been linked with a lengthy list of potential signings this summer, but Rodgers insists most of the rumours have no substance to them.

"I am out of the country on holiday at the moment, but I am on the phone constantly," Rodgers told the South Wales Evening Post.

"I think we have seen already that we are going to a new level in the Premier League in terms of gossip and rumour.

"Agents are working hard to try and move players and unfortunately that's what you read about in a lot of the media nowadays.

"We have been linked with all sorts of keepers, for instance, who are just not in my thinking.

"There is a whole media circus which comes with being in the Premier League, and it's been incredible reading about some of the players we are supposed to have made bids for.

"I just hope our fans can be patient.

"I have spoken to players and we have bids in for players and there will be movement between now and the end of August."

Rodgers has signed Danny Graham and Steven Caulker this summer but lost Darren Pratley and Dorus de Vries, and added: "I have had discussions with managers and with players that I like.

"We are waiting to see how things develop now.

"There are lots and lots of players who are interested in joining us and over the course of the summer there will be signings."
