Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers is hoping to add up to four players to his squad before the transfer window shuts tonight.

The Swans boss is on the lookout for defensive and midfield reinforcements, with strength at the back a particular concern after Alan Tate broke his leg in a golf buggy accident on Sunday.

The Premier league new boys have won many plaudits for their style of play and despite a 4-0 battering from Manchester City in their opening game have picked up two points so far.

The south Wales club have been linked with moves for Fulham’s Rafik Halliche, Middlesbrough’s Matthew Bates and Watford’s Adrian Mariappa.

While Rodgers would not be drawn on which individuals he is looking to bring in, he hopes there will be a few deals done during the course of the day.

“Defence is an area I have felt we needed to strengthen,” he told Sky Sports. “But we want to bring in the best players we can, I don’t want to just stockpile players.

“We want players who can add to our group.

“We will try and do our business behind the scenes and once we confirm any deals we will make that news.

“I hope to bring in up to three, maybe a maximum of four, and I will be relatively happy.”
