Swansea ponder Rodgers replacements
Brighton boss Gus Poyet is the early favourite to replace Liverpool-bound Brendan Rodgers as new Swansea manager.
Swansea are expected to lose Rodgers to Liverpool, provided the two clubs agree on a compensation figure, and so will be looking for a new boss for the Premier League campaign come August. Chairman Huw Jenkins has said he plans to move quickly to find a successor to the popular Northern Irishman and already former Chelsea midfielder Poyet appears to be in the frame. The Uruguayan has earned himself a decent reputation in charge of Brighton, guiding them to the Championship 12 months ago, and is viewed as a Premier League manager of the future. Poyet is the early frontrunner but other names in the frame at this stage include Blackpool boss Ian Holloway, former Denmark international Michael Laudrup, MK Dons boss Karl Robinson and ex-Charlton and West Ham chief Alan Curbishley.
