Rodgers: Quality Over Quantity Signings In January

Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers says he won't sign players for 'the sake of it' in the January transfer window.

Rodgers says he's fully aware that he needs to strengthen his squad in the New Year, but insists he'll only buy players that will improve his side.

The Irishman says he'd ideally like 4-6 new players in 2012, but realistically that looks highly unlikely. The Swans don't tend to be quick in completing deals for players and 4 signings in the space of one month sounds unrealistic for us.

Rodgers said:

'I could bring in 10 bodies but they might be no good. I need to know I have quality.'

'The first six months of the season was always going to be a learning curve for us and the players that got us promoted had earned the right (to play in the Premier League).

'We had a couple of moves that fell through so we have had a really small group, but January will give us a chance to assess where we are at and we know fine well that we need to strengthen, but I am not one to bring people in for the sake of it.

'I would rather have quality than quantity and we need enough quality players here if I need to make changes that can affect the game.'
