Martinez Not Hurried By Deadlines

It seems, reading Roberto's words that there is unlikely to be a repeat of the flurry of activity of twelve months ago when three players arrived at the Liberty on the final day of the transfer deadline.

And whilst admitting that there is a need for a goalkeeper to be added to his squad, Roberto seems unlikely to be hurried into a move for anybody – preferring to wait for the right person rather than being hassled around deadlines set by the league.

Speaking to the Evening Post, the Swans manager said ''Hopefully we will be able to strengthen in the goalkeeping department, but it's a special position and there is always the emergency loan market if we need it. There will be no rush because the window doesn't count much at this club.

''We are always looking to improve, but we don't work to deadlines.

Twelve months ago Andrea Orlandi, Warren Feeney and David Knight all arrived on transfer deadline day but with the international break meaning no Championship football for two weeks there is every chance that Roberto may wait for the emergency loan window rather than being rushed into a signing today.

And until such time as a goalkeeper arrives it seems that Alan Tate remains our matchday back up should it ever be needed.
