Former England international Sol Campbell is not a transfer target for Swansea, according to manager Brendan Rodgers.

Reports had suggested the Swans would move to bring in the 37-year-old ex-Arsenal, Tottenham, Portsmouth and Newcastle centre-half, who is currently a free agent.

Rodgers is looking to counter a lack of defensive options due to the unavailability of Alan Tate, Steven Caulker, Darnel Situ and Rafik Halliche, but he insists there is no truth in the link to Campbell.

The Swansea boss joked: "Yeah, I am meeting at three o clock. No, there is nothing at all (in that)."

But Rodgers is hopeful of putting a deal in place for trialist Zoltan Liptak, who has trained with Swansea this week.

Experience

The 26-year-old Hungary defender is available after leaving Videoton.

"We are taking the chance to look at players who could come in and add to our squad," said Rodgers.

"He wants to play, is an international player with a bit of experience and he has shown up well at training.

"He is a player who has not played a great deal and we hope he can do well.

"He hasn't played a game since his last international for Hungary in Sweden, but I want to give him every chance to prove he is capable of coming into the squad."
