QPR give Swansea permission to speak to Eustace

QPR have given Swansea City permission to speak to John Eustace.

The Rangers assistant manager is in the frame to take over as Swans boss following the departure of Steve Cooper.

Eustace, 41, was considered by the Welsh club prior to the appointment of Cooper in 2019. 

Eustace managed non-League Kidderminster before being given the assistant manager’s role at QPR when Steve McClaren took over as boss at Loftus Road in 2018.

He remained in the position following the appointment of Mark Warburton as manager the following year, having had a spell in caretaker charge after McClaren was sacked.

Eustace is keen to manage a League club – despite turning down the chance to speak to Blackpool about taking over there in March last year.

Warburton, meanwhile, is likely to sign a new contact before the start of the season.
