Swansea manager Garry Monk says his transfer business is over for the summer as things stand.

Monk did not categorically rule out adding to his squad further before the transfer window slams shut at the start of the month but he stressed he isn’t “actively looking” for new faces, nor does he expect any outgoings.

The Swans have managed to land Andre Ayew, Franck Tabanou and Eder this summer, and Monk insists he is happy with his current options.

“I think we are done,” Monk told the South Wales Evening Post. “I am not actively looking for anyone.

“You can never say never but nothing is imminent or anything like that and there will be no-one going out, either.

“The squad I have is the one I wanted. We worked hard in the summer to get everything sorted early so we had good preparation time and you can see in how we have started that is proving beneficial.

“I am very happy with the squad I have got.”

The Liberty Stadium outfit have enjoyed an impressive start to the campaign with four points from two games to date, having held champions Chelsea to a draw before seeing off Newcastle.

The Swans are bidding to improve on last season’s eighth-placed finish and qualify for Europe after just missing out last term, with Southampton earning a spot in the Europa League qualifying rounds thanks to their seventh-placed finish.

Swansea travel to Sunderland on Saturday and they are 2.05 to secure a victory. Sunderland, who have yet to pick up a point this season, are on offer at 3.80 to come out on top while a draw is available at 3.40.
