Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf report Swansea City are eyeing up Jaap Stam as their new manager, and also confirm Leeds United have been interested in the Dutchman.

Carlos Carvalhal just missed out on saving Swansea from relegation to the Championship, and has subsequently left his role with the Welsh club.

Now on the lookout for a new man, it’s explained if Swansea City can find a deal with Stam then the manager will get to work with fellow Dutchmen Luciano Narsingh, Leroy Fer, Mike van der Hoorn and Erwin Mulder at the club.

De Telegraaf don’t present an appointment as imminent, they just insist there’s genuine interest in a deal being done.

Stam was one of several managers linked to Leeds United after the club parted company with Thomas Christiansen.

In the end, Paul Heckingbottom was taken on from Barnsley and Leeds saw their season somewhat stutter to a close.

The Dutch media are pretty good at keeping on top of things like this, so we’ll keep an eye on any Swansea City developments with Jaap Stam.
