The former Welsh international is set to have talks with chairman Huw Jenkins on Monday about the possibility of replacing Roberto Martinez.
Swansea City will also speak to other candidates. Other names in the frame are former Watford boss Aidy Boothroyd who has declared an interest in the job according to Huw Jenkins.
He told BBC Sport that he is looking to push things on next week:
‘As things stand, there’s some good people who have applied,’
‘We are going to push on next week and get cracking.
‘We will try our best [to do something by the end of the week] and see where we get to.’
Due to the on-going saga regarding Martinez’s delayed move to Wigan, little has been reported about who our next manager could be. Gary Speed is the only potential candidate who’s been mentioned recently. Rumours suggest that Gus Poyet and Dennis Wise have applied for the job.
