Swansea City boss Roberto Martinez is considering turning goalkeeper Dimi Konstantopoulos' loan stay into a more permanent arrangement. The 29-year-old has impressed since joining the Swans from Coventry City, marking his debut with a crucial penalty save in the goalless draw at Doncaster Rovers. Martinez told the South Wales Evening Post: "If we can, we would love to keep Dimitri. You want players who want to be on the pitch and who want to win games and he certainly falls into that category. "He enjoys his daily work with us, he enjoys the way we play the game and he likes the dynamics of the group. "He needed a few days' training to get to know the way we work, but he has fitted in naturally and bringing him into the side was an easy decision. "He has the quality to play at this level, that's for certain and it's great to have the strength in the goalkeeping department he brings us."
