Former Sunderland boss Gus Poyet is 'interested' in the vacant manager's post at Swansea City.
The Swans may compensate Poyet's current club AEK Athens if he succeeds Garry Monk, who left on Wednesday after one win in 11 league games.
The club wants to name a new manager before the Premier League game at home to West Ham on 20 December.
Swansea's caretaker manager Alan Curtis is in charge for Saturday's league game away at Manchester City.
Poyet is the bookmakers' favourite for the Swans role, although former Wales winger Mickey Thomas believes Manchester United assistant manager Ryan Giggs would be interested in the vacancy.
Other potential contenders appear to have been ruled out.
David Moyes, sacked by Manchester United and Real Sociedad in the last 20 months, is not interested in replacing Monk, while ex-Swans boss Brendan Rodgers is reportedly eyeing up other opportunities.
Rangers boss Mark Warburton also says he is committed to his role with the Glasgow club.
