The Jacks are on the hunt for a new boss after sacking American Bob Bradley after just 85 days at the club.

It’s the second time this season the Welsh club have ordered a change in the hotseat, having given Francesco Guidolin the boot in October.

Wales chief Chris Coleman and Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs are among the early favourites to take over a team who sit 19th in the Premier League table - having claimed just three wins this term.

And when asked about the job, former Tottenham boss Redknapp told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: “It sounds interesting – it sounds a challenge!

“Swansea are a good club and it would be a tough challenge, but a good challenge.

“It’s a great club – where they’ve come from and what they’ve done, and the atmosphere there is absolutely fantastic.

“It’s a tough job for someone but it’s not an impossible one – I still think they’ve got a chance of staying up.

“It’s going to be tight, but they’ve still got a chance."

Redknapp has a track record of rescuing clubs in danger of the drop, having steered both Portsmouth and Tottenham clear of Premier League relegation in the past - so could the Jacks turn to the experienced boss to get them out of trouble?

He certainly didn't rule himself out of the running when quizzed by breakfast host Max Rushden: “I’ve not heard anything, I’ve had no approach from anybody.
