An American consortium led by Stephen Kaplan and Jason Levien took over in July, inheriting Guidolin as manager.

According to Press Association Sport though, a change of boss just weeks into the Premier League is not inevitable, despite Swansea being without a win.

Ryan Giggs and Gianfranco Zola have both been linked to the job, but after Saturday's loss to Manchester City Guidolin admitted he had not yet discussed his future at the club.

Francesco Guidolin was given a two-year contract with the Swans in May.

Giggs, who left his role as Manchester United assistant manager over the summer, ending a 29-year association with the club, last week said he had had no contact with Swansea.

Swansea City are mourning the loss of Swans and Wales legend Mel Charles, who passed away aged 81.

The former centre spent seven years at the club as well as enjoying stints with Arsenal and Cardiff City.

He played alongside his brother, John Charles during Wales' journey to the quarter-finals of the 1958 World Cup.

Speaking to the club website, Swansea coach Alan Curtis spoke of the "sad loss."

Not only was he highly respected as a footballer, he was a fantastic character who enjoyed life to the full. Everybody loved to be in his company.

There is no doubt he will go down as one of Swansea and Wales’ greatest players and will now join that great football team in heaven."

Wales international Ben Evans is to leave Super League side Warrington at the end of the season, the club have announced.

The 23-year-old prop has made 22 appearances since joining the club from school alongside twin brother Rhys but has spent much of the last two seasons playing on loan with Bradford and Leigh after being hit by injury.

I've had an amazing time at the club since moving up here with Rhys and would like to thank all the staff and my team-mates for the opportunity but for now it's time to move on.

– Ben Evans, Welsh rugby league international
