36 year old Liberty Stadium manager has done well since replacing Michael Laudrup as manager of the South Wales side back in February 2014 and chairman Huw Jenkins will surely fight to keep hold of the impressive young boss.

Old campaigner Allardyce will see his Hammers deal expire in the summer and no new deal is on the table and whilst Real Sociedad’s David Moyes was tipped to replace ‘Big Sam’ it now appears that Monk is the favourite for the job.

Though Swansea City sit four points ahead of West Ham in the table one imagines the Upton Park side may be able to offer Monk a more lucrative deal and with the club’s move to the Olympic Stadium on the horizon there is every chance the former centre-back might consider such a switch.
