Ferrie Bodde says he's confident that he'll be able to play a few League games this season.
The Dutch midfielder has struggled with a serious knee ligament problem for the past two years and is now trying at the third attempt to put his injury woes behind him.
Bodde is currently training 6 days a week in his native Holland but he's expected to continue his recovery in Swansea in the New Year.
'Things are going really well at the moment and I'm sure I will make some games by the end of the season,''
'The hard work really started three weeks ago and I firmly believe I'm on my way back.
'I'm training six days a week; 50 per cent on the pitch and 50 per cent in the gym. For four of those days I'm training twice a day.
'I'm feeling more confident now than when I made my last comeback. But while I will remain positive, I am not going to lie to myself. If I don't trust my knee then I'm not going to go for it because if it happens again then I will have problems for the rest of my life.''
Bodde also added that he can't wait to start playing again:
'I can't wait to play again,''
'But my only focus at the moment is on my rehab and I'll only look to play again once I'm 100 per cent.
'The boys are doing really well at the moment. I'm in contact with a few of them on a regular basis and I speak to the gaffer (Brendan Rodgers) and chairman (Huw Jenkins) every so often.
'I've got access to Sky and BBC TV out here, so I know exactly how the team is doing.
'I watched the Cardiff City game live on TV and you could see there was nothing negative in the players' game. Everything was positive.
'The gaffer is doing a good job and playing a much more positive system than last season. He is getting the best out of the players and they are giving everything back to him.
'There's a great atmosphere in the squad and I can't wait to be part of it again.''
