Hoddle is being linked with a return to Premier League management.
Tottenham Hotspur and England legend Glenn Hoddle is the latest high profile name to be linked with the newly vacant manager’s position at Swansea City, according to the Mirror.
Previous boss Michael Laudrup was sacked from the role on Tuesday after a string of bad results and now the club are on the lookout for a successor.
Hoddle has not managed in the Premier League for over 10 years after being sacked by Spurs in 2003 and was last in charge of any side in 2006 with Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Yet the 56-year-old is keen to get back into the hot seat at a club and Swans chairman Huw Jenkins has the Englishman on his shortlist.
Hoddles has previously managed at Chelsea, Southampton, Tottenham and the Three Lions national team and has a strong coaching pedigree.
Garry Monk has been put in charge of the Welsh side in a caretaker capacity, but is unlikely to be the long-term solution and Jenkins has also pinpointed some other targets.
Everton assistant Graeme Jones – who was also No.2 at the Liberty Stadium when Roberto Martinez was in charge there – is one of those on the list and has been approached in the past.
Brighton and Hove Albion boss Oscar Garcia and former Argentina and Chile head coach Marcelo Bielsa are also in the fray, as is Arsenal legend and current Ajax deputy Dennis Bergkamp.
The departure of Laudrup came quite suddenly and was something of a shock considering the Dane had led Swansea to their first ever major trophy last season when winning the League Cup.
