Swansea City have been reported as close to landing a number of targets in recent weeks but as yet no new faces have arrived at the Liberty.   That though is a fact that is not concerning the Swansea manager as he prepares his side for the visit of Sheffield Wednesday tomorrow with the Swans aiming to surpass the 60 point barrier for the season.

“I am a manager who tries to anticipate things and, because of that, I am organised if no players come in or we keep having injuries." Sousa told the Western Mail

“I need to have options for the players I have. I need to have all the players prepared if no other players come in.

“This is what I have and, if I can’t have more than this, I have to work with this.

“We have only a couple weeks left because after that we cannot do anything.

He (The Chairman) knows what we need, everybody knows what we need, but for that we keep waiting,

“I have said from the beginning that I gave a list of the players I want and then I wait.

“I don’t know if the players are still available, I don’t have the details.

“For me it is very important, to be a big club or to get close to being a big club.

“First you make the deals and after you speak about the players. Not before.

“I fight a lot every day to become a big club and big clubs do it that way.

“It is not hard to attract players, especially at this moment because we are looking to get promotion.

“For this club, this season is one of the years they have spent a lot of money.

“We can’t accuse the club of not spending money. We need to spend the right money.

“I am not frustrated by the lack of new players, I keep winning so I am not frustrated.

“I am very happy with the squad of players that I have. If we do have more problems then I will try to do my best with what we already have.

“We have to keep working with the same enthusiasm and the same belief.”
