Two CHELSEA icons Frank Lampard and John Terry are in the mix to take on Swansea City job.

According to talkSPORT, Frank Lampard and John Terry have emerged among the favourites to become Swansea next new manager.

Swansea are in search for a new manager after the departure of Steve Cooper.

Cooper has twice led Swansea to the Championship play-offs, losing most recently in May to Brentford in the final at Wembley, where they missed out on promotion to the Premier League to Brentford.

It was felt then that the relationship with Cooper and key figures at the club had run its course, however he remained in control. With less than two weeks to go until the new season, he and the club have parted company by mutual consent.

Steve Cooper: “I am very proud of what we have achieved over the past two seasons, especially getting to the play-off final, but it feels like a good time for all parties to make a change.

“It is a fantastic club, with incredible supporters and I am very grateful to them, to the players and all the staff for making me so welcome here. I wish the team every success for the future.”

Now, who is the next manager through the door at the Liberty Stadium?. There several high-profile managers out there.

The Chelsea legend Frank Lampard tops the list for the Swansea job alongside Eddie Howe.

Meanwhile, Aston Villa assistant John Terry has also been mentioned as an early contender.
