Cape Town - Swansea City manager Garry Monk says that he needs more players as he looks to strengthen his squad in the current transfer window, reports Football411.

The Swans remain inside the top half of the Premier League table, despite their 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Chelsea on Saturday, but Monk still wants more options at his disposal during the second half of the season.

"I have said before that we haven't got the biggest squad," Monk said. "We have good players already, although we didn't show that against Chelsea. But while we have talented footballers here, you always need to add to that to help the other players and improve the squad.

"The chairman knows that, I know that. We improved the squad last summer, we will try to do it in this window if possible and we will try to do it in the next window as well."

Swansea will face Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday, and will then resume Premier League action with a trip to Southampton on February 1. They will face a tough test against the Saints, but Monk believes his players are better than they appeared against the Blues, and will hope to show that at St Mary’s.

"On the whole I have to be pleased with what my squad have been doing, but we have to make sure there are no more performances like the one we produced against Chelsea," he concluded.
