Martinez assistant tipped for Swans job

Published Add your comment

Wigan number two Graeme Jones has emerged as the favourite to replace Brendan Rodgers at Swansea after leading bookmakers suspended betting on the identity of the Welsh club's next manager.

Brighton boss Gus Poyet and Blackpool's Ian Holloway had led the betting after Rodgers informed Swansea of his desire to leave and sign a three-year deal at Liverpool. The two clubs are set to agree a compensation deal today.

But a surge of bets on Jones saw the 42-year-old's odds come in as far as 1/10.
