Wigan assistant boss linked with vacant Swansea post

Wigan have dismissed reports assistant boss Graeme Jones is set to take over as the new Swansea manager. The Swans have been looking for a new manager since Paulo Sousa's defection to Leicester last week.

A statement on the club's website said: "Wigan Athletic would like to confirm that assistant manager Graeme Jones is looking forward to the new season at the club and remains deeply committed to carrying on his work at the club alongside manager Roberto Martinez and the rest of the coaching staff.

"Media speculation over the weekend would suggest that Jones is a front runner for the vacant manager's position at his former club Swansea City, but the club can confirm that Jones is fully concentrated on taking the team through pre-season and into Latics' new Premier League campaign."
