Swansea hope to appoint Brendan Rodgers' successor by the end of the week, Press Association Sport understands.

The south Wales club have been searching for a new manager since Rodgers took over at Liverpool two weeks ago. Chairman Huw Jenkins has played his cards close to his chest in the search for a new boss, but the hunt is set to be stepped up when he returns from holiday in the coming days.

A number of names have been linked with the job at the Liberty Stadium including Gus Poyet, Marcel Desailly, Dennis Bergkamp and Graeme Jones.
