Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers does not expect to conduct much more business in the transfer window and had no complaints with the performance of his team in defeat at Sunderland.

Last season's Championship play-off winners suffered a seventh away loss of the season in the Premier League as they were undone by excellent goals from Stephane Sessegnon and Craig Gardner.

But Rodgers took positives out of the match and insisted he was more than happy with his players after they dominated possession at the Stadium of Light, albeit without a cutting edge.

The Swansea boss named on-loan Hoffenheim midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson in his starting XI for the first time, while the Icelander was replaced in the second half by debutant Josh McEachran following his temporary move from Chelsea.

And Rodgers told Sky Sports after the game: "We won't be doing much more in terms of business in this market.


"I am delighted with the group in relation to what we have.

"As you could see today, the performance level was terrific. I don't need any more players, I don't feel."

Rodgers was annoyed Swansea could not build on last weekend's win over Arsenal, however, he was pleased to see his squad stick to their principles.

"In terms of result, obviously disappointed," Rodgers said when asked if he was frustrated.

"But, performance-wise, we were fantastic today with how we passed and moved the ball and created chances. I have got no complaints about my team."
