Swansea City head coach Steve Cooper is to leave the club just two weeks out from the season opener at Ewood Park.

The Swans boss is set to leave his position at the Liberty Stadium after two years in charge.

The Daily Telegraph reports Cooper is close to agreeing a termination of his contact, with an announcement expected later this week.

Cooper, aged 41, has guided the club to back-to-back play-off finishes, losing out in May’s final to Brentford at Wembley, with speculation over his future ever since.

During his time with the Swans he has been linked with countless other jobs, including Crystal Palace and Fulham this summer, but it is reported he had concerns over the direction of the club.

Since relegation from the Championship three years ago, key players such as Joe Rodon, Oliver McBurnie and Dan James have all departed the club, while star man Andre Ayew is out of contract.

With the prospect of more departure this summer, including former Rovers loanee Matt Grimes, former England Under-17s boss Cooper is set to cut ties with the club.

Speaking after a pre-season friendly win over Plymouth Argyle on Tuesday, Cooper said: "I think if there is any real news that's when we would speak.

"There's no official updates on anything. You know I don't like talking about myself so let's focus on the boys.”

Cooper, along with Tony Mowbray, is one of only eight Championship who have been in the job for over a year.

It is suggested that the Swans having been lining up replacements, having anticipated the scenario for several weeks, and have managerial targets in mind.

Cooper had been in to the final 12 months of the three-year deal he signed when replacing Graham Potter in 2019.
