rendan Rodgers says West Ham goalkeeper Robert Green is not on the Swansea's wishlist - and expects the Hammers to sign Eidur Gudjohnsen.[LNB] After recently signing shot-stopper Jose Moreira from Benfica, the promoted Swans have stated their intention to further strengthen their options between the posts following Dorus de Vries' exit to Wolves. [LNB]But Swans chairman Huw Jenkins has already confirmed that Fulham keeper David Stockdale is unlikely to join the Welsh side, and Rodgers has now also ruled out Green. [LNB]"We haven't spoken to Robert," he told Sky Sports News. "He's obviously a fantastic keeper but he wasn't one that we've spoken about."[LNB]Rodgers added of Stockdale: "Obviously David Stockdale is very keen to come but he's a signed player with Fulham and they're looking to get him loan experience. Maybe that's out of our hands."[LNB]The Swans boss also admits he has called time on his interest in Gudjohnsen, with the former Chelsea striker likely to go to West Ham. [LNB]He said: "Eidur won't be coming. I spoke to him again last night and I think he'll probably end up going to London to be at West Ham."[LNB]Swansea have made three additions to their squad so far this summer, and Rodgers is keen to sign a few more fresh faces ahead of their debut season in the top-flight. [LNB]"I feel I only need to add three or four to give us an opportunity to stay in what is a fantastic league," he said. [LNB]"The players we have, I believe, will show up very well. [LNB]"If I can support them by bringing in three or four more I think we can surprise a few people this year."
