Welsh side set to interview the former England boss this week as he seeks a return to the top-flight more than a decade after his last Premier League job.

Glenn Hoddle is on Swansea’s managerial short-list to replace Michael Laudrup.

Former England boss Hoddle is interested and is set to be interviewed this week as the Welsh club's chairman Huw Jenkins looks to appoint a new manager.

Mirror Sport understands Hoddle was sounded out about the job three months ago, but was reluctant to get involved while another man was still in charge.

The 56-year-old last worked in the Premier League in September 2003, when he was sacked by Tottenham, and hasn’t run a team since leaving then-Championship side Wolves in summer 2006.

But it is known Hoddle wants to get back into top-flight management and he is a genuine contender following this week’s sacking of Laudrup.

He has an impressive list of former clubs on his CV, having also been in charge at Chelsea, Southampton and Tottenham, as well as the national job.

Jenkins wants to give veteran defender Garry Monk a chance to prove he's up to the job - but it still seems unlikely that the untried 34-year-old can be the long term solution.

Monk had a training-ground bust-up with Swansea's Spanish defender Chico Flores last month and his appointment as caretaker - alongside coach and club legend Alan Curtis - may not be popular with some elements of the dressing room.
