Former York City defender Graham Potter is in talks to become the next manager of relegated Premier League club Swansea City.

However, the Ostersunds boss is amongst a number of potential candidates to succeed Carlos Carvalhal at the Liberty Stadium.

Ex-Crystal Palace and Ajax manager Frank de Boer and former Reading supremo Jaap Stam are others,  according to BBC Wales.

However, Potter, 43, is still believed to be at the top of their list after remarkably steering his club from the bottom division in Sweden and into Europe, while including winning the Swedish Cup and also at Arsenal in the Europa League last season.

Potter scored eight goals in 125 appearances for York having originally begun his career with Birmingham City, and also had playing spells with Stoke City, Southampton, West Bromwich Albion, Boston United and Macclesfield Town.
