Manager Carlos Carvalhal is set to leave Swansea at the end of the season, with the club facing nearly certain relegation from the Premier League, reports said Thursday.
Carlos Carvalhal, Manager of Swansea City shakes hands with Cedric Soares of Southampton during the Premier League match between Swansea City and Southampton at Liberty Stadium on May 8, 2018 in Swansea, Wales.
Whether the Baggies drop down to the Championship or not, though, many are backing the former centre-back to take the job full time and lead the club back to the Premier League.
The 26-year-old allegedly wants to be regarded as first-choice forward at a team playing in Serie A, and a number of teams are said to hold an interest.
Southampton's win doesn't put them out of the woods yet. If the Saints somehow lose 6-0 then Swansea would need to win by four goals against the already-relegated Potters, but it isn't that easy. A loss will mean they will remain level on points with Southampton and three points above Swansea City.
Mooy's club, Huddersfield, gave their survival chances a major boost with a hard-fought goalless draw away to champions Manchester City last weekend. Moore's side needed a draw to occur in order to take the fight into the final day of the season on Sunday. A 3-0 defeat at Chelsea on February 12 left Pulis' replacement Pardew with just one win from his 13 league games in charge and the club seven points behind 17th-placed Huddersfield.
