Aitor Karanka and Gus Poyet in frame for Swansea hot seat

Swansea City have employed a three-man selection panel in an attempt to find Graham Potter’s successor at the Liberty Stadium.

Chairman Trevor Birch has been joined by the club’s former caretaker managers Alan Curtis and Leon Britton as the trio sift through “a significant number” of applications for the Championship post.

However, Potter’s replacement could already be at the club. Under-23 coach Cameron Toshack remains the favourite in the next Swansea manager market and the Daily Mail reports that he’s worked with 15 players that have gone on to feature in the first team.

Over the past 24 hours a couple of new names have entered into the betting in Aitor Karanka and Gus Poyet. Both managers are currently unemployed and both have worked in the Premier League and Championship during their careers.

Karanka, who previously led Middlesbrough up to the top-flight, has been out-of-work since leaving Nottingham in January. In the past week he’s been hotly linked with a return to Boro although he’s since drifted out to 50/1.

Poyet previously steered Brighton into the Championship, before going to manage Sunderland in the top-flight, while he’s since ventured around Greece, Spain, China, and France. However, his spell at Bordeaux ended in absolute turmoil in September.

Elsewhere, former Swans defender Alan Tate has been thrust into the frame at 12/1, Newport County boss remains a presence at 8/1, and Chris Coleman is a 20/1 shot.

Barnsley boss Daniel Stendel could represent an attractive option given his impressive opening season in England, and former Swansea boss Garry Monk, now at Birmingham, also features.
