Former St Johnstone midfielder Jody Morris has been identified as a potential candidate for the vacant head coach role at Swansea City (Athletic).

The English Championship club are searching for a new head coach after the departure of Steve Cooper. Former Scotland centre-back Russell Martin is also in contention after his work as manager of MK Dons but St Johnstone’s former midfielder is also under consideration at Swansea City.

Morris is said to have held talks with Swansea City about becoming the head coach in Wales.

The 42-year-old has been out of work since January when he departed his role as Chelsea assistant manager, following the exit of Frank Lampard as manager.

The former St Johnstone midfielder is held in high-regard by those in Perthshire. He helped the McDiarmid Park club win promotion to the Scottish Premiership in 2009 and made over 100 appearances for St Johnstone.
