According to The Mirror (May 20, page 50), Swansea City will speak to the Queens Park Rangers assistant manager, John Eustace, about succeeding Graham Potter this week. And the newspaper claims the respective Barnsley and Sunderland bosses, Daniel Stendel and Jack Ross, are also among the potential candidates.

Potter is expected to become the new Brighton and Hove Albion manager, after the Premier League club triggered his £2 million release clause.


And Eustace, whose QPR team beat the Swans 4-0 while he was caretaker boss last season, is said to have caught the eye as a potential replacement.
