David Moyes and Brendan Rodgers will be top of the Swansea wanted list as they look to replace beleaguered manager Garry Monk.

Monk has been under pressure for the last few weeks and last Saturday's 3-0 home defeat against Leicester appears to have been the tipping point in his reign as the club's manager.

His exit would be condemned by many in the game after he led Swansea to an impressive eighth place finish in the Premier League last season, but his position has been under threat for some time now.

Rodgers may be tempted by a move back to the club he left to take over as Liverpool manager in 2012, but he would have to give up a huge chunk of his pay-off from the Anfield club if he returned to Swansea now.

The full disclosure of Rodgers' pay-off from Liverpool has not been made public, but it is believed he will still being paid by the Merseyside giants until he gets another job.

Moyes may be easier to lure to the Liberty Stadium, as he is keen to get back into work in the Premier League after difficult spells in charge of Manchester United and Real Sociedad ended in failure.

Here at the latest odds on who will replace Monk if Swansea make a change ahead of next weekend's game against Manchester City:

Brendan Rodgers 11/8

David Moyes 11/8

Mark Warburton 10/1

Graeme Jones 20/1

Roberto Di Matteo 20/1

Andre Villas-Boas 25/1
