Rodgers: Keeping quiet over goalkeeper targets
Brendan Rodgers has refused to be drawn on whether Swansea have made a move for Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Lee Camp.
The promoted Swans have reportedly made a £1million bid for the keeper after regular No.1 Dorus de Vries departed for Wolves last month.
The Welsh side have since brought in keeper Jose Moreira from Benfica, but Rodgers is keen to further strengthen his options in goal.
The manager is looking at several shot-stoppers, and would not say whether Northern Ireland international Camp is among them.
"There are a number of keepers we are looking at," said Rodgers.
"Because of how we play, any keeper we sign needs to be comfortable with the ball at his feet as well as making saves.
"We have a number of targets we are looking at but I want us to stay patient and get the players we want."
The signing of Moreira was Swansea's third of the transfer window to date, with the arrival of the Portugal international coming in the wake of the season-long loan signing of Steven Caulker from Tottenham and the club-record £3.5m deal to bring in Danny Graham from Watford.
Rodgers has no doubt the former Middlesbrough striker will make a big impact in south Wales.
He said: "Danny is a terrific talent. I signed Danny at Watford, which was a brilliant club for me.
"He is a great mover, he is technically good and can finish on both sides.
"He looked capable when he first broke onto the scene at Boro. He made his debut away at Manchester United, but it did not quite happen for him.
"But he has gone away and scored goals at the lower levels and done it the hard way, and he is now ready to make a mark.
"He reminds me of Kevin Doyle in that he is a player who is hungry to score goals, to link well and work his socks off and I think he'll do great for us."
Swansea are also hoping to confirm new deals for midfielder Nathan Dyer and Thomas Butler in the near future.
