koeman cKoeman will leave his position as Feyenoord coach at the end of the season, and wants to take on a job outside of Netherlands, with clubs in Germany, and England the target.

Swansea City sacked Michael Laudrup last month, and replaced him with club favourite Garry Monk, but could look for a more experienced coach for next season. Monk, who is only 35-years-old, is believed to be safe in his job, but with the club fighting potential relegation, the situation could change before the end of the season.

The Premier League club’s director John van Zweden confirmed to Voetbal International that they had been approached by Guido Albers, Ronald Koeman’s agent.

Zweden said, “Albers indeed approached with the question of whether Koeman was a suitable candidate for Swansea.”

“I passed on the number of the agent to Huw Jenkins and whether there has been any contact I really do not know. I know that the club is very pleased with Garry Monk.”
