Huw Jenkins says it'll be the club's hardest decision in choosing their next manager.
The Swansea City chairman told Sky Sports News yesterday that out of around 30 applications they received, 30 of them are of 'top quality'.
With so many names to consider and such a competitive short list of possible candidates, Jenkins and the board have a tough decision, but he hopes to appoint the new manager as soon as possible in preparation for next season.
Despite being happy that the contenders for the job have got better over the last 7 years, he doesn't want to be looking for a new manager every 2-3 years.
Jenkins told BBC Sport:
'I would love to get things sorted as quickly as I can,'
'There's no front-runner yet.
'Some have been in the game a long time, some haven't but have shown a lot of promise.
'There's a lot of wide-ranging applications and, to be fair, this is going to be the hardest decision I'm going to have to make and the board have to make.
'I think all our minds are quite open to try and find the right man for the job.'
'The level of contenders has greatly got better over the last seven years but, to be honest, we don't want to be in this position of looking for managers every two or three years.
'We are looking for the right person to stay with us and develop the club over a period.'
Jenkins also added that he wants to appoint someone who will continue to get the team playing football in the right way.
Martinez had us playing in a unique European style that was a joy to watch, and Jenkins wants to continue that trend.
'We want to make sure Swansea City are still going to be renowned for good football.
'I think we should keep that at the club as much as we can and get the right person in to complement that.'
'We will explore all avenues and speak to as many people as we can and we will take things from there.
'I think over the next few days... depending on what answers I get from certain people and how they see our club will either speed the process up or not.'
