Swansea forward Stephen Dobbie insists he has no plans to leave the club on loan despite his lack of action this season.

Dobbie, who played a key role in Swansea's successful promotion from the Championship last season, has not started a game since the 4-0 defeat to Manchester City on the opening weekend of the season.

Millwall and Blackpool have both been linked with loan moves for the 29-year-old, but Dobbie is determined to stay at the Liberty Stadium and fight for his place in Brendan Rodgers' side.

The 29-year-old has come off the bench in four more Premier League fixtures, though, and he is not interested in turning his back on the top flight.

"I don't want to go out on loan," Dobbie told the South Wales Evening Post.

Working hard

"I have worked all my career to get to the Premier League, so now that I am here I am not going to give it up without a fight.

"I hadn't heard anything about Millwall being interested and I don't know anything about it.

"But it's nothing for me anyway. I am just working hard in training and doing my best in the reserve games to try to get back into the team."

Dobbbie added: "I haven't played as much as I would have liked so far this season, especially coming off the back of a good season last year.

"But the boys have been playing well, and the gaffer has brought in a couple more quality players in my position now we are in the top division.

"I want to kick on, but I just have to bide my time. I need to keep working hard like I did last year and I am sure my chance will come."
