Who is in the running to replace Graham Potter at Swansea?

Graham Potter is set to leave Swansea after a single season at the helm in order to realise his dream of becoming a Premier League manager with Brighton, who sacked Chris Hughton at the end of the season.

The Seagulls are preparing for their third straight season in the top-flight and want Potter as their new boss. He has rejected a new contract offer from the Swans in order to jump up a division. BBC Sport reports that an agreement of £3million compensation is in place for the Englishman and his staff.

Bar a sudden collapse, Potter is expected to be appointed early this week, meaning Swansea will be forced to open up the search for a new head coach for the second successive summer.

Bookmakers Paddy Paddy have already released the next Swansea manager, led at this early stage by the club’s under-23s boss Cameron Toshack who is priced at 3/1 to follow in the footsteps of his famous managerial father, John, who moved into management with the Swans in 1978 (first as player-manager, then full-time manager).

John Toshack is widely regarded as one of the club’s best ever managers having overseen an astonishing rise from the fourth division into the top-flight in the space of just four seasons, followed by a 6th place finish.

Next in the running is Michael Flynn who is one win away from leading Newport into League One. The Welshman is priced at 6/1 alongside a familiar face in Leon Britton who previously managed the Swans on a caretaker capacity in 2017 following the exit of Paul Clement.

 

Assistant manager Billy Reid features but he is likely to follow Potter over to the south coast of England. Ryan Giggs (9/1) is managing Wales making an appointment improbable.

Former Derby and Stoke boss Gary Rowett is out of work and worth keeping an eye on in this market, while Chris Coleman is also a free agent.

Sam Allardyce is a 16/1 shot, and former Swans assistant Claude Makelele - now in charge of Belgian First Division A club Eupen - is out at 25/1.
