England under-17 coach Steve Cooper has emerged as a contender for the managerial vacancy at Swansea.

The 39-year-old is the latest to be linked with the role at the Liberty Stadium following Graham Potter’s departure to Brighton earlier in the summer.

Cooper led England’s under-17 side to World Cup glory with the likes of Phil Foden and Jadon Sancho in 2017.

But he is yet to hold a managerial role with a senior side and his appointment by Swansea would certainly raise a few eyebrows.

The Pontypridd-born former defender has worked with the academies at Wrexham and Liverpool, while his only other managerial role came with England under-16s.

Reports claim Swansea are also considering the likes of Cameron Toshack, Michael Appleton, Gus Poyet and John Eustace.
