Chairman Huw Jenkins says Swansea have had plenty of interest
Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins says the club are closer to appointing a successor to manager Paulo Sousa who left for Leicester City last week.
Ex-Reading boss Brendan Rodgers is the frontrunner but Scunthorpe's Nigel Adkins is also in the frame.
"I would like to say we are a little bit further down the line than we were a couple of days ago," said Jenkins.
"I just hope we get everything sorted and I would like to think so by the weekend."
Jenkins has all but admitted defeat in the chase for former Wales captain Gary Speed after Sheffield United, where he is on the coaching staff, turned down two approaches.
And he also says he expects Hamilton boss Billy Reid's refusal to have talks to be the end of that matter.
"We are still pursuing a couple of options," added Jenkins.
"They are the same options that we've been looking at for the last week just going through the fine detail making sure we find the right man to continue what we've started at Swansea City and get us ready for the start of the new season."
"It's taken a bit longer... but I think we are getting there slowly."
