Former Reading manager Jaap Stam is under consideration to become Swansea City's next head coach, according to a report.

Jaap Stam is reportedly under consideration to become Swansea City's next head coach.

The former Manchester United centre-back was sacked as Reading boss in March, but the 45-year-old is still said to be highly regarded in the coaching game.

Swansea are currently on the lookout for a new manager following the exit of Carlos Carvalhal last week, and former Wales and Sunderland manager Chris Coleman is seen as the favourite.

However, according to Sky Sports News, Stam is one of a number of candidates being considered, with the former Netherlands international keen to return to management for the 2018-19 campaign.

Swansea will play Championship football next term after finishing 18th in the Premier League table at the end of the 2017-18 season.
