Released goalkeeper Andy Oakes says there are 6 to 8 clubs interested in signing him.
He was shown the door this week along with Tommy Williams after being told by Roberto Martinez that the two players weren't going to be offered new deals.
Oakes said: 'There are six or eight clubs who have been in contact already,'
'Tranmere and Rotherham have been in touch, and there are also a couple abroad which could be interesting, the main one being Antwerp.
'I didn't know about them until I met the gaffer (Roberto Martinez) on Monday and he told me.
'About half the clubs had made contact before the gaffer and I spoke, but he then informed that most of the phone calls he has had about players were about me.'
I thought Oakes was treated rather unfairly during his time here. Martinez came in, watched him put in a good performance away at Yeovil and then instantly dropped him, for a keeper who has been highly criticised by the fans recently.
He added: 'I don't really feel as though I've been given a proper chance,'
'I did my best when I played. I tried to win when for Swansea and we won three out of my five games, so hopefully that contributed to what was almost a successful season.
'It was tough to take when I was left out after Yeovil, but if I'm honest I expected it to happen. The manager knew Willy from his previous time at the club so it was no great shock when he put him in.'
'Football-wise, I'll be looking to cancel my year at Swansea from my memory,'
'But as for the place and the people we've met, well I'm sure we'll remain good friends with them in the future.''
