Tony Pulis and Louis van Gaal linked with Swansea City after Paul Clement sacking

Swansea are on the hunt for their fourth manager in just over a year following Wednesday night’s sacking of Paul Clement.

Clement and Stoke City boss Mark Hughes were having their own battle to see who would become the sixth Premier League gaffer to be axed this season, and in the end it was Clement who won, or lost, depending on how you see it.

The Englishman saved the Swans from relegation last term, but after winning only three of his 18 league games this time around, the rock bottom club opted to wield that dreaded axe.

In recent weeks Tony Pulis has been hotly linked with both Swansea and Stoke, and it’s the cap-sporting former West Brom boss who currently tops the Next Swansea Manager Market.

The 'firefighter' has never been relegated from the top-flight, however he was given the boot by the Baggies earlier this season following a rotten run of form.

Former Man Utd gaffer Louis van Gaal is a surprise contender for the post at 7/2. Earlier this week the Dutchman expressed his desire to return to England as he feels he has unfinished business following his departure from the Red Devil’s in May 2016.

"I will probably not manage a club anymore. I would make one exception - if a big English club comes for me, than I would do it. Because then I can get the chance to get one over on Manchester United”

Although whether he has the appetite for a relegation dogfight remains to be seen.

Other names in the frame at this early stage include Swans coach Leon Britton, Ex Everton gaffer Ronald Koeman, novice Ryan Giggs, while Michael O’Neill can be backed out at 20/1.
