Swansea manager odds – Jody Morris leads Frank Lampard and John Terry for Swans job after opening 'discussions'

JODY MORRIS is the frontrunner in Swansea's search for a new managerial appointment.

That's according to bookmakers Sky Bet, who've priced Morris at 11/8 to take the reins at the Liberty Stadium.

The Swans are busy discussing potential candidates to replace Steve Cooper.

Cooper, who reached the play-offs in each of his two seasons, left in July with obvious job on offer elsewhere.

The 41-year-old informed Swansea of his decision two weeks before leaving so the club could source a replacement.

The Swans board had expected QPR assistant manager John Eustace to take charge but were left stunned by his unexpected U-turn.

Swansea have now accelerated their search for a successor with their season-opener against Blackburn fast approaching.

And Frank Lampard's long-time assistant Morris is the leading candidate in the betting market.

Sky Sports claim Morris is in discussions with Swansea, who are also considering several other options.

The 42-year-old coached Chelsea’s youth academy between 2014 and 2018 before joining Lampard at Derby and Chelsea.

Former Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder has received significant support in the betting – shortening from 33/1 to 3/1 overnight.

Wilder has been out of work since being given his marching orders by the Blades in March.

Wilder joined the Yorkshire club in May 2016 and guided them from League One to the Premier League during that time.

MK Dons manager Russell Martin is also priced at 3/1.

Martin boasts an attacking brand of football and led the League One club to 13th during his first full season in charge and briefly threatened play-off qualification.

First-team coach Alan Tate was in charge for Wednesday's 2-1 friendly win at Forest Green.

He's priced at 5/1 to get the job on a full-time basis and has stated previously that he wants to be a manager.

He said: "I do feel as if I am ready to go into it, whether it's now, a few months' time or a few years' time."

John Terry is offered at 12s with Graeme Jones and Cameron Toshack priced at 20/1 and 22/1 respectively.

Chelsea hero Lampard is outsider of the field at 25/1.
