Fulham keeper David Stockdale has confirmed he would be willing to go out on loan this coming season in order to play regularly.
Stockdale made seven Premier League appearances last term with veteran Mark Schwarzer earning the bulk of the playing time.
The Cottagers are closing in on the capture of Hungarian goalkeeper Csaba Somogyi and Stockdale is keen to play more games.
Swansea are looking for number one reinforcements following Dorus de Vries' Wolves move and Stockdale is a fan of the club.
The ex-Darlington shot-stopper is keen to play in the Premier League if possible, although he would be willing to consider the Championship.
"I think (Jol) might stay with Mark, which is understandable, so it might be a chance for me to go out on loan," he told Sky Sports News.
"They've signed a new goalkeeper, so hopefully that paves the way for a loan move. I want to play games.
"It's not about being part of the Premier League and sitting on the bench. It's nice, don't get me wrong, but I want to be playing games.
"If there isn't a Premier League option I might have to go down the league.
"The chairman's passed the word that he doesn't want to sell me. I just have to get on with it. I like it here.
"I've been here three years now. I've had to prove myself time and time again. I've just got to keep working hard."
When asked if he fancied a move to Swansea he added: "Definitely. What a club to go to.
"They've just come up. It would suit me down to the ground."
