Wigan Athletic Assistant Manager Graeme Jones has been ruled out for the Swansea City Manager's job...once again.
The 40 year-old has been one of the strong favourites, along with Gary Speed, to return to the Liberty Stadium as manager, but the Latics have released a club statement on their Official Site, insisting he's staying at the DW Stadium.
It reads: Wigan Athletic would like to confirm that Assistant Manager Graeme Jones is looking forward to the new season at the club and remains deeply committed to carrying on his work at the club alongside manager Roberto Martinez and the rest of the coaching staff.
Media speculation over the weekend would suggest that Jones is a front runner for the vacant manager's position at his former club Swansea City, but the club can confirm that Jones is fully concentrated on taking the team through pre-season and into Latics' new Barclays Premier League campaign.
Jones is travelling with the team for this week's training camp in Sweden.
Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins initially ruled out a move for Jones, insisting he 'wasn't in his thoughts' when he and the board were compiling a shortlist of potential candidates.

As it stands, Jones looks highly unlikely to take the job. It does seem unlikely too that Jenkins would go back to a former employee - one that decided to leave us only 12 months ago. The other top favourite, Gary Speed, also looks an unlikely appointment as Sheffield United are denying us the chance to speak to the Welshman.
Dean Holdsworth is an outside bet as Newport County say they won't stand in his way if he wants to leave. However, the Welsh club say they haven't received an approach from the Swans for their boss.
