Swansea City may seek quick fix with Frank De Boer

Swansea are bottom of the Premier League following Saturday's 3-1 defeat to Everton and find themselves four points adrift of safety after losing nine of their previous 11 games.

Swansea City have confirmed in an official statement on their website that they have "parted company" with manager Paul Clement.

"We can confirm that the club has tonight parted company with head coach Paul Clement", the club said on its Twitter account.

Ayew has struggled for form this season and that is partly blamed for Swansea's struggles.

Together we managed to achieve 29 points in 19 games, culminating in a 15th place finish and ensuring the club would compete in the Premier League for a seventh consecutive year. According to various media reports, the Premier League's bottom side are hoping to appoint a new manager within the next 24 hours.

Wenger reacts to Arsenal's tight victory over Newcastle
Mesut Ozil scored the lone goal in the 23rd minute to earn Arsene Wenger's men their tenth league victory this season. Ozil took his goal brilliantly as he continues his fine run of form, despite concerns about his future.

It would be an ambitious move for the Swans as Martinez is now head coach of Belgium and will be taking them to Russian Federation for next summer's World Cup finals.

Swansea lost last season's leading scorer Fernando Llorente and midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson during the summer transfer window, severely weakening their squad.

Former Manchester United player Ryan Giggs also told Sky Sports News he does not want to take over from Clement after he was overlooked for the role when Clement's predecessor Boby Bradley was handed the position.

You have to feel that if Clement doesn't pick up any sort of positive result at home to another improved side in Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon, that the former Derby County boss could be facing eating his Christmas lunch without being the manager of the Welsh club.
