Lukasz Fabianksi has welcomed the increased competition for goalkeeper places at Swansea ahead of the new season.
Boss Francesco Guidolin has Sweden international Kristoffer Nordfeldt, experienced German Gerhard Tremmel and summer signing Mark Birighitti as keeper options alongside Fabianski this term.
Poland international Fabianski is set to be first choice when the Premier League action gets under way but he has welcomed the increased fight for places.
He told the club’s website: “The goalkeeping department has a number of options – it’s good to see competition for places. No matter what position you play, it’s only natural that you give even more to ensure you keep your place.
“Having strong competition is good for the players, the manager and the team.”
The 31-year-old says he enjoyed the summer playing for his country at Euro 2016, where they were beaten by Portugal on penalties in the quarter-finals.
He added: “It’s good to be back. It’s been a busy summer – I had a very positive experience with Poland at the Euros.”
