MICHAEL Laudrup has admitted Swansea City are already working hard to ensure they land the right new faces this summer.

But the Swansea manager has reiterated that he is not interested in stockpiling players just because the club are preparing for Europe as well as the Premier League.

Laudrup wants to operate with only around 22 senior players next term, so there will not be a huge number of signings during the close-season. But that does not mean Swansea are not trying to find the right recruits now.

"Right through January I was asked about which players might be coming or going," Laudrup said.

"But just because February 1 came, that didn't mean we could be relieved and that we could stop working because it never stops.

"We are already working for next season. We worked right through the last month and that will continue."

Laudrup reckons it is vital Swansea search for quality rather than quantity as they plan what may be their most demanding season ever.

"Being in the Europa League doesn't mean we'll work with a larger squad because I don't belive in having too big a squad," he added.

"Of course there will be some new players arriving and strengthening certain positions.

"But I don't think it's the moment to talk about the names, who is coming who is leaving, because we have nine games to go.

"I prefer to concentrate on the players who are working now.

"But of course backstage we are still working because we can't wait until May 20."
