Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers has admitted his disappointment at losing goalkeeper Dorus de Vries.

The Dutch stopper joined Wolves earlier in the month after turning down a new contract at the Liberty Stadium, rejecting the chance to be number one in Wales for a chance to rival Wayne Hennessey for the position at Molineux.

Whilst Rodgers admits it's a loss to the club to lose the former Den Haag keeper, the former Reading boss is actively searching for a replacement and is confident the club can move on quickly from the loss.

"Dorus was obviously a big part of my plans and I am surprised and disappointed that he's gone to be honest," said Rodgers.


"I was led to believe the negotiations were going well, but he has decided to go and be a No 2 goalkeeper in the Premier League rather than a No 1 goalkeeper in the Premier League.

"But, like every club, we move on, and we must now focus on who is going to come in."
