Carlos Carvalhal will leave Swansea City at the end of the season after the club’s final game at home to relegated Stoke City.

Back in December the Portuguese coach signed a short-term contract with the Swans, but it's now understood that the club have decided not to offer him a new deal at the Liberty Stadium.

Swansea’s defeat to Southampton, coupled with Huddersfield’s point at Chelsea, means that Carvalhal’s troops need to beat Stoke, hope the Saints lose to Man City, then somehow overcome a 10 goal swing.

To put that into a betting context, the Welsh side are a 150/1 shot to conjure up a miracle and survive the dreaded drop.

Carvalhal replaced the sacked Paul Clement towards the end of 2017, just four days after losing his job at Championship side Sheffield Wednesday.

The 52-year-old went on to enjoy an unexpected manager bounce, leading the Swans to five league wins from his opening nine matches, while he charmed both fans and pundits alike with his anecdotes and analogies.

A 4-1 hammering of West Ham in March, moved the club up to 13th, three points clear of the relegation zone. However, they’ve registered only three draws from their subsequent eight games, meaning they are now effectively down and out, bar the greatest of great escapes.

Chris Coleman has been installed as the early favourite, while the likes of Michael Appleton, Alan Pardew, Alan Curtis and Lee Johnson are also in the mix.
