Brendan Rodgers has revealed that he has received inquiries from both British and Spanish clubs about Gorka Pintado.

The Swansea City manager says that if the right deal comes up, he will look to release Pintado, along with other Reserve players such as Shefki Kuqi, Jordi Lopez and Cedric Van Der Gun.

Rodgers says his squad is too big and wants to make room for new signings:

‘We have had one or two inquiries, from both here and in Spain, about Gorka,’

‘That’s something I will discuss with him and see if we can take forward.

‘There’s no doubt we need to create some space ? the squad is much bigger than I want it to be at the moment.

‘But whether other players will go depends on whether clubs come in for them, so we will have to see what happens over the next month. We’ve got guys like Jordi Lopez, Cedric van der Gun and Shefki Kuqi who are terrific professionals but are at stages in their careers where they want to be playing.

‘We have been fantastic this season and it’s been difficult for them as senior players to be on the outside.

‘There’s no doubt that if the right possibility comes up for them, we will look at it.’
