Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins has strongly hinted that manager Garry Monk is close to being sacked.

He is in London today receiving an OBE for services to sport in Wales and says "something needs to change".

"We all feel at the club that something needs to change to get things back on a positive note as quickly as possible and get us back to the levels of performances we have got to have to win games at the Premier League level," he said.

But Jenkins says no announcement will be made today regarding the manager's future because he is in London.

 

Swansea have lost four out of their last five Premier League games and have just one win in 11 top flight matches.

Monk's first season in charge in the last campaign saw Swansea enjoy their highest ever finish of eighth, which he spoke to Off The Ball about the start of this season.
