Former Chelsea coach Jose Morais is a contender for the vacant managerial post at Swansea City, Sky sources understand.

Morais is currently unattached after leaving Chelsea last week following the sacking of Jose Mourinho and Sky sources understand he is in the running to succeed Garry Monk at the Liberty Stadium.

The Portuguese also worked under Mourinho at Porto, Inter Milan and Real Madrid. 

His last managerial position came with Saudi Arabian side Al Shabab in 2014, but his stint in the Arabian Peninsula lasted just three months. 

Sky sources have also confirmed former Sunderland and Brighton manager Gus Poyet is still being considered as a potential replacement for Monk.
