Laudrup considers keeper cover

Swansea boss Michael Laudrup admits he may have to bring a goalkeeper in on loan when Michel Vorm undergoes knee surgery.

The Dutchman was forced to sit out Monday night's 1-1 draw with Hull, with Gerhard Tremmel starting in goal as 18-year-old Slovenian Gregor Zabret took his place on the bench.

But Laudrup does not see that as an ideal situation and is considering making an approach for a more experienced deputy once he decides when he can manage without Vorm.

When asked if he would look to bring a keeper in, he said: "Let's see. It depends when we can do it (Vorm's surgery).

"We have games, and there are times when we have very many games, and times when we have less.

"But we always have games and you can't play with one keeper.

"That's much too risky. If something happens to Gerhard then we would have to play with an 18-year-old who is not an experienced goalkeeper.

"That's not good for him or for the team."
