'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Rodgers Delighted To See Rangel & Orlandi Stay

Manager Brendan Rodgers said he was delighted to see out-of-contract duo Angel Rangel and Andrea Orlandi sign new deals at Swansea City, as he looks to shape his squad for the new Premier League season.

The Irishman showed his obvious disappointment to see the departures of two key players - goalkeeper Dorus De Vries (Wolves) and midfielder Darren Pratley (Bolton) but he's now looking to bring in 3 or 4 more new players ahead of the season's opening match on August 13th at Manchester City.

Rodgers told Sky Sports:

'It was disappointing to see some guys leave, but that is part and parcel of football.

'The focus for us has been to keep the likes of Angel Rangel and Andrea Orlandi to commit to the club which I was delighted with and, of course, we needed to add further quality to this squad of special players.

'We needed to look at the attacking options, and we addressed it by bringing Danny in. That was a major signing for us. I think we needed to strengthen at the back too, and Steven's arrival will do just that. He is a quality young player with a hunger to succeed in the game.

'With Dorus gone we have had to look at the goalkeeping issue and Jose's signing bolsters that department. I'd say we are still looking for three or four players to add to the team, so things are going along nicely.

'It is certainly not uncommon for clubs to be well into their pre-season plans and then sign players, which could well be the situation for us. I'm happy with the way things are going.'
