Oscar Garcia: On Swansea radar

Oscar Garcia: On Swansea radar

Former captain Garry Monk has been place in charge for the 'foreseeable future' but it is understood that whilst Swansea's hierarchy are willing to give the new set-up a chance, they are actively looking at alternatives.

There is no sign or willingness for Swansea to move away from their style of play - first instigated by Roberto Martinez and continued by Paulo Sousa, Brendan Rodgers and Laudrup - under a new boss.

With that in mind Garcia and Enrique, who are impressing in their current roles with Brighton and Celta Vigo respectively, are understood to be on their radar.

Glenn Hoddle has also been linked, and we understand that Martinez's number two at Everton, Graeme Jones - who has links with Swansea too from his time in South Wales - would also come under consideration.

French reports also claim that former Chelsea defender Marcel Desailly is another who could emerge as a contender for the role.

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
