Chinese Super League clubs after Wales boss Coleman

Wales national team manager Chris Coleman is a wanted man.

Reports suggest that a pair of Chinese Super League clubs are showing a great deal of interest in the 46-year-old who led the Dragons to the semi-finals at Euro2016 this past summer.

It is understood that CSL sides Yanbian Funde and Tianjin Teda are ready to offer former Swansea City, Crystal Palace and Fulham defender Coleman lucrative deals to quit his post with the Football Association of Wales (FAW) and make the move to the Far East.

The Chinese top flight already has former Brazil boss Luiz Felipe Scolari, ex-Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas and former Manchester City gaffer Manuel Pellegrini in their coaching ranks.
