Former Leeds manager Kevin Blackwell is set to hold talks with the Swans about taking over as manager following the departure of Kenny Jackett.

Blackwell’s been out of work since he was sacked by Leeds 5 months ago and he has spent some of the time travelling across Europe and South America learning new coaching techniques.

Blackwell said: “I hope my record speaks for itself. I am one of the most qualified coaches in Europe, but I still think you have got to try to learn more and that is why I`ve been abroad in recent months,”

Check back soon for a full profile of another candidate for manager, Kevin Blackwell. We will also be profiling Dean Saunders and Roberto Martinez this week.
