Monk 'frustrated' at Swansea draw

Swansea City manager Garry Monk admits he was frustrated that his side didn't pick up all three points against Sunderland.

The Swans went a goal down to the visitors to the Liberty Stadium thanks to a first half Jermain Defoe strike.

But despite Ki Sung-yueng's equaliser after the break, Monk thought his side deserved more than a point.

We got a good equaliser from Ki and we tried to push to get the second but it just wasn't meant to be today and sometimes that happens. We had enough chances to score at least two or three goals today but it didn't want to go in the back of the net unfortunately.

Speaking to the club's website, Naughton said: “My main aim is to start playing regular football again. I know it’s going to be a tough challenge because there are some very good players here, but that’s my goal.

“I’ve had quite a few loan moves over my career, but I actually played 34 games last season for Spurs, which is a fair amount. The main problem for me, however, was that I was still in and out of the team. That’s difficult at times.

“I’m sad to be leaving Spurs because it’s a great club. I was there quite a while and the lads are a great bunch. But now I just want to settle into life at Swansea and try to play regularly. It all comes down to playing football – after all, that’s my job.’’
