Koeman interested in Swansea role, says agent

The former Valencia and Benfica coach will leave Feyenoord at the end of the season and is open to the idea of succeeding Garry Monk at the helm

Ronald Koeman is keen to take over at Swansea City, according to his agent Guido Albers.

The former Netherlands international will part company with current club Feyenoord at the end of the season, after announcing his decision to stand down last month.

Swansea named Garry Monk as their head coach for "the foreseeable future" following Michael Laudrup's departure on February 4, but the Welsh side have won just one of their four Premier League games since Monk took over and sit only four points above the drop zone. 

Albers has now confirmed that he has contacted Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins on Koeman's behalf, as the Dutchman considers the next move in his coaching career.

"If he [Koeman] gets the chance to be the new manager of Swansea then he's willing to," the agent told Radio Wales Sport.

"One of his wishes is to work in the Premier League. Swansea's a fantastic club and a club with a lot of potential on the pitch.

"He'll be able to get success for the club. If you see all those fantastic players at Swansea perhaps he can take Swansea to a higher level."

Albers also revealed that he has received plenty of his interest in Koeman, who had spells in charge of Ajax, Benfica and Valencia before moving to Rotterdam in 2011.

"If they [Swansea] are really interested, come back to me," he added. "But I can't call them every day.

"Since the time he announced he is leaving Feyenoord already 25 agents have called me."
