Dennis Bergkamp has emerged as a surprise contender for the managerial vacancy at Swansea.

Chairman Huw Jenkins indicated earlier this week that the south Wales club are ‘very quickly’ moving towards a successor for Brendan Rodgers and on Tuesday night Bergkamp became the bookmakers’ favourite to fill the role.

The former Arsenal forward, who is currently Frank de Boer’s assistant at Ajax, meets Jenkins’ stated preference for being ‘young and hungry’, but Sportsmail understands Graeme Jones, the Wigan No 2, is still the preferred option.

Jones is believed to be reluctant to make the step to management, but Jenkins has not given up hope of landing the former Swansea assistant manager at the third attempt, having failed to land the 42-year-old with previous approaches in 2009 and 2010.

Brighton manager Gus Poyet, Ian Holloway of Blackpool and former Barcelona legend Michael Laudrup are also in the frame, while Marcel Desailly has been linked with the post.
