Swansea City's Nathan Dyer plans to prove he can still be a...

NATHAN Dyer's verdict on the increased competition in the Swansea City squad would be music to his manager's ears. "I have to be on top form to get in the side," the winger acknowledges. Garry Monk suggested earlier this week that any player who does not buy into the team ethic he wants at the Liberty this season ought to try tennis rather than football.

Balotelli has been linked with a move to Sampdoria, but his wages appear to be a massive stumbling block. All three are training away from the main group at Melwood.Chelsea...

The draw means Swansea finish pre-season unbeaten, though they have won only...
