The former Spurs boss, who failed to keep QPR in the top flight in similar circumstances four years ago, hasn't worked in the top flight since quitting QPR when faced with another relegation battle in 2015.

Swansea have opted for another change in strategy less than three months after appointing American Bob Bradley as a replacement for Francesco Guidolin.

Four defeats in their last five matches have left the Swans four points adrift of safety in the Premier League table.

Redknapp's last assignment in football management was a bizarre two-game spell in charge of Jordan during the country's World Cup 2018 qualifying campaign.

Speaking to talkSPORT about the prospect of taking over at the Liberty Stadium, Redknapp said:

It sounds a challenge – a tough challenge but a good challenge, but a good challenge. It’s a good club. Where they have come from, what they have done.

It’s a tough job for someone but it’s not an impossible job. I still think they have a chance of staying up.

If the opportunity came up it would be one that would be interesting.
