The Swans want to bring in Wales manager Chris Coleman at the Liberty Stadium as the American’s successor, with Paul Clement emerging as a backup option

Swansea City have begun talks with the Wales FA to hire Chris Coleman as their next manager, Sky Sports reports.

The Premier League relegation battlers are believed to have identified their ideal candidate to replace the departed Bob Bradley.

Coleman is a the top choice to sit in the Swans’ dugout following his achievements with Wales at Euro 2016.

Another strong candidate for the job is Bayern Munich’s assistant coach Paul Clement, who was in the running for the role against Bradley in October, impressing enough in his interview to come back into contention again.
