Ex-Sheffield Wednesday boss Carvalhal a candidate for Swansea job

Former Sheffield Wednesday boss Carlos Carvalhal is a candidate for the Swansea City job.

Wales Online reports Carvalhal has emerged as a potential target for Swansea City as they refuse to rush their decision on replacing Paul Clement.

Carvalhal was sacked by Sheffield Wednesday on Christmas Eve but has long had admirers at the Liberty for his style of football and work to turn the Owls into promotion contenders, leading them to the Championship play-offs in successive seasons.

And the 52-year-old former Besiktas and Sporting Lisbon boss is among those now being seriously considered to become the new man at the helm.

"There is no change, I spoke with the chairman on Christmas Eve and that is the last conversation I have had," Swans caretaker boss Britton said following the 5-0 defeat at Liverpool on Boxing Day.

"We are in training on Wednesday, I don't know if I will speak to the chairman of the owners tonight or tomorrow, but as things remain I will be in charge for Watford and for training."
