Kemy Agustien says he's aiming to 'step up his game' and help the Swans in their bid for promotion to the Premier League.
The Dutchman was sidelined since the end of July with a bad knee ligament injury but he's been back in action for a month or so and now he's looking to get a regular place in the starting eleven.
Agustien, a big and strong central midfielder who looks very comfortable on the ball, is looking to play his part in Brendan Rodgers' squad, and he's also willing to play in defence if it means he's playing regularly.
"I have to step up my game now to get in the starting eleven,"
"I am ready to go and get promotion with Swansea City.
"Defence is not my usual position but if the team needs me and the gaffer puts me in there I will do my best to help bring the points home.
"I will always try to bring my own quality into the game and hopefully I proved that with the final ball for the goal.
"I have to keep going myself because I have just come back from injury.
"I`ve worked hard and it`s not easy to come into the team because everybody is playing well and the team is doing good.
"But if I keep going like this I`m sure my chance will come."
Rodgers, who is a big admirer of the Dutchman, says he's willing to put Agustien in defence against Portsmouth on Friday night if Garry Monk doesn't recover from a calf strain.
"Kemy can step in there, the Dutch play that way at times where their second centre-half is a midfield player.
"They understand how to step in and play the ball.
"I`ve mentioned it to Kemy before if he is comfortable playing in there.
"That`s a risk you take sometimes to get something from the game, if not win the game.
"The players have shown they have that mental courage to adapt.
"I would have no qualms about putting Kemy in there from the start, as he showed in his little cameo there that he`s comfortable enough, especially at home where we`re going to dominate the game.
"We`re hopeful Garry might be back for next Friday.
"He`s making good progress and we`ll see how he goes the remainder of this week."
