Swansea City say they've approached three different clubs as they continue their search for a new manager.
Chairman Huw Jenkins has also confirmed that the club is more than willing to pay out compensation to ensure they get the right man for the job.
Their approaches so far though have been unsuccessful. Two approaches for Gary Speed were rejected, while Hamilton Academical boss Billy Reid declined the job.
'I can confirm that we have made just three official approaches to different clubs about speaking to potential managerial candidates,'
'It would be unfair for me to confirm those candidates or clubs at the moment.
'I can assure our supporters that we are more than happy to pay compensation for the right man - and clubs are aware of that.
'While I'm mindful that the supporters would like to see someone in place as soon as possible, we will not make a rash decision by rushing into things. When we make an appointment, it has to be the right one.'
Jenkins said he was hopeful to appoint a new manager by Monday (12th July), but he now says he's in no rush to replace Paulo Sousa.
While I'm mindful that the supporters would like to see someone in place as soon as possible, we will not make a rash decision by rushing into things. When we make an appointment, it has to be the right one.''
'As a club we find ourselves in an unusual position. Clubs who lose their manager are normally in disarray. We are not.
'We are lucky to have Colin Pascoe and Alan Curtis to hold the reigns, while you won't get a better captain than Garry Monk. They know how the club operates on a daily basis, having worked closely with the last two managers in Roberto Martinez and Paulo Sousa.
'This football club is sound and stable. It has a solid structure in place that we are determined to maintain rather than bring in someone new who wants to restructure the club and set it on a totally different path.
'That's why we cannot afford to make any rash decisions. We have to be selective and make the right appointment at the right time.
'Our overall structure has progressed a lot over the last three years and I am mindful of maintaining our principles, while also fully committed to finding someone who can work with us and take this football club forward again.
'I would urge our supporters to be patient and understanding because we are working extremely hard to do the very best for you and this football club.''
