The Herald is reporting that Falkirk boss John Hughes could be a possible replacement for Roberto Martinez to become Swansea City’s new manager.
The Spaniard is expected to be unveiled as Wigan’s new manager tomorrow after a compensation fee was agreed between the two clubs. The Daily Mail believe it to be £1.75 million.

John Hughes’s future at Falkirk is thought to be in doubt after a rift with chairman Rod Petrie and he’s already been linked with moves to Aberdeen and Hibernian.
Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins could make a surprise move for John Hughes and ask the Scottish Premier League side for permission to speak to the 44 year-old.
Hughes began his managerial career with Falkirk in 2003 and since then has managed 283 games, winning 117 (41%) losing 105 and drawing 61.
Hughes has been quoted before as saying – ‘I never self-promote but I am at the stage where I wake in the morning and ask myself, ‘Have I taken Falkirk as far as I possibly can?`” A new job at Swansea City could be an attractive new challenge for Hughes as Huw Jenkins is now looking for Martinez’s successor – someone who can move the club forward and get us competing at the top of the Championship.
Former Reading boss Steve Coppell is also a popular name amongst Swansea fans as we discuss who we’d like to see as Martinez’s replacement.
