Carlos Carvalhal looking to bolster struggling Swans

Swansea boss Carlos Carvalhal admits he wants to bolster his squad during the January transfer window.

The Portuguese coach only took over the reins at the Liberty Stadium at the end of December and, despite winning his first game in charge, the Swans remain bottom of the Premier League standings and four points adrift of safety.

Carvalhal is now hoping to bolster his squad during the January transfer window, although he admits there are limits on how much he is will be able to spend on new recruits.

Asked if he will have money to spend in January, Swansea boss Carvalhal said: “Absolutely, there are limits because this is a responsible club and they don’t want to create a future for the club in the future. I understand this and I accepted this when I came here.”

The 52-year-old believes it is only natural for a new manager to want to bring in his own players and he thinks the Swans will step up their recruitment drive following this weekend’s FA Cup third-round clash with Championship leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers.

“This is football, different managers want different players with different characteristics,” the former Sheffield Wednesday boss added.

“It is how you think about football, we know exactly what we want and what we need. After Saturday we will be completely clear in what we have.”

Swansea are priced at 4.75 to secure a victory over Wolves, who are available at 1.80, while the draw is on offer at 3.50.
