Hamilton Academical manager Billy Reid has turned down the chance to take over as Swansea City's boss.
Reid has remained loyal to the club that he's spent 5 years at, in that time he's guided Hamilton to Scottish Premier League after winning the First Division title in his 3rd season.
He told their Official Site:
'I have a built a very strong and hard working squad, we have a hugely successful youth policy and I feel a huge sense of loyalty to the players and staff at Hamilton,'
'I remain hugely ambitious and want to progress in management but, with this offer, the timing was wrong.
'On top of this I have a superb working relationship with our chairman, Ronnie MacDonald, who gave me my first opportunity in management at Broadwood and that is my ultimate reason for staying.'
Chief executive George Paterson revealed that Swansea City had asked for permission to speak to Reid, but he remains committed to the Accies:
'Our chairman was asked by Swansea Football Club for permission to speak to our manager, Billy Reid, regarding an opportunity for Billy to take over as manager of Swansea.
'Billy was flattered by the approach from a club with the stature of Swansea but he feels obliged to see through the unfinished work he has at Hamilton.'
The Swans were hoping to replace Paulo Sousa by today (Monday) but it looks like we'll be managerless again for our second pre-season friendly tomorrow when we travel to Hereford United.
Gary Speed and Graeme Jones remain the two front runners for the job, but there's been no reports suggesting that either are close to becoming the new boss at the Liberty Stadium.
