Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins has revealed former Reading boss Brendan Rodgers is among the names being considered for the vacant manager's job at the Liberty Stadium.
Gary Speed, Billy Reid and Nigel Adkins have already been linked as possible successors to Paulo Sousa, who recently left the club to become manager of Championship rivals Leicester.
Jenkins, who is understood to have already met with the former Watford chief, told the Western Mail: "Brendan Rodgers was one of the first names to come into us. When we looked around leagues and managers that adopt our kind of football, our thoughts were on the way the club should be run, the way we play and train."
He added: "Brendan, going by what he has achieved at Chelsea and then moved on to Watford, has got those principles and has always been a candidate from day one.
"I've spoken to him at length, like I have with a few potential managers. One of the main priorities is their thoughts on our football and making sure we remain different to the majority of the teams in the Football League, and that's very much in his thoughts."
