BLACKPOOL boss Ian Holloway is said to be a target for managerless Swansea.

It comes after talks broke down between the Swans and Wigan Athletic assistant boss Graeme Jones.

The national press today reported Swans chairman Huw Jenkins is now turning his attention to Holloway in a bid to lure him to the Liberty Stadium.

Brendan Rodgers left Swansea for Liverpool last week, and Jenkins was trying to tempt Jones, Roberto Martinez’s number two at Wigan, to the Welsh club.

But Jones is reported to have told the Swans hierarchy he did not see himself as a manager, and was happy with his role at Wigan.

If the widely-rumoured move for Holloway is unsuccessful, Jenkins may move for other candidates.

Jose Ramon Sandoval, who managed to keep Rayo Vallecano in the Spanish La Liga this season, has been linked with the job, so too has Michael Laudrup.

Byram Tutumlu, Laudrup’s agent, said: ‘We have not heard anything from Swansea.’
