Dorus De Vries looks set to leave the Swans, as Martinez doubts his commitment to the club.
The Swans boss has said previously how he likes to sign the right players for the right reasons - those who want to play for the club.
De Vries hasn't shown that, as he is yet to sign a new contract with Swansea City.
The Dutch goalkeeper was given 7 days to put pen to paper but that deadline has passed and it's highly unlikely that he'll get the opportunity to stay at the Liberty Stadium.
Roberto Martinez told Wales Online:
"I just look for the right frame of mind in my players,"
"If a player is not sure about playing for Swansea City it`s quite clear we need to move on and offer him our best wishes.
"You can always look back and assess the impact any player has made at our football club.
"But, in terms of their future, the player has to be 100% that he is desperate to play for Swansea City.
"If that`s not the case, we need to be strong enough to find a replacement that is desperate enough."
"I`m not saying I don`t expect Dorus to sign an extension.
"I`m saying I don`t want to sign players who are not 100% committed to our club.
"It`s not a case of putting a gun to someone`s head and getting them to sign.
"It`s about getting the players with the right attitude and, if you look at the past two years, the players that have been successful are the ones that love playing for our football club."
De Vries looks highly likely to leave, but Martinez still won't rule out the possibility of him staying, he added:
"If he does come back now he will probably have to convince some of the fans of his commitment again,"
"I wouldn`t go into detail but I know the fans have the right to know the ins and outs of any deal.
"Right now all I can guarantee the fans is that whoever I sign will be 100% committed to Swansea City.
"They will be desperate to help this team win games."
Martinez has narrowed down his search for a goalkeeper to a list of 5, with the likes of Scunthorpe's Joe Murphy, Manchester United's Tom Heaton and Birmingham's Colin Doyle linked with a move to Swansea City.
