Swansea City are set to be disappointed in their pursuit of Chris Coleman with the Wales manager determined to see through his nation’s World Cup qualifying campaign.
The Premier League club have made Coleman their primary target to take over from sacked Bob Bradley but it is understood the 46-year-old is committed to remaining in charge of Wales.
But Charlotte Coleman, maiden name Jackson, tweeted on Thursday to insist Swansea had little chance of landing her husband, given his intent to manage abroad following his spell as Wales boss.

In reply to a message suggesting she would fit in well in the area around Swansea Bay, the 38-year-old Sky Sports News presenter wrote: 'The mumbles are lovely but my husband has said publically after Wales we would hopefully move abroad - but good luck to Swansea!'
Swansea placed Coleman at the top of their list due to his impressive work in guiding Wales to the semi-finals of Euro 2016 and his appeal was enhanced by his previous links to the club, where he played for five years.
But Coleman strongly values his role as national manager, coaching the likes of Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey, and is focussed on reigniting their ambitions to qualify for Russia 2018.

Speaking at the conclusion of Euro 2016, manager Coleman ruled out ever moving to manage England, but admitted his desire to move abroad in search of Champions League football, given he feels he is unlikely to win one of the top jobs in the Premier League.
'My next job after Wales, whenever that is, will maybe be abroad,' Coleman said in July.
'I've never really been shy in saying that. I quite fancy the chance of going abroad again, because I think that's my best chance of managing in Champions League football.
'Because if we're being honest, Champions League football in the Premier League, you're talking about the top, big, massive clubs, it's not something I think I'd get linked with.'
Coleman's stock rose considerably following his side's run to the final four at Euro 2016
The former Fulham and Coventry boss has managed abroad on two previous occasions, having taken charge of Spanish side Real Sociedad in 2007 and Greek club Larissa in 2011.
Coleman was recommended for the Sociedad job by former Wales manager John Toshack but, following a successful start which saw him take his side to fifth in the Spanish second division, he resigned due to a change in the club's vision.
His time in Greece ended after a little more than six months in charge, after he resigned due to the club's poor financial position.

The 46-year-old also likes his home-life in Winchester, where he lives with Charlotte and their two young children, and while he could quadruple his wages at Swansea appreciates the rest he currently gets in between international matches.
He has also previously ruled out taking over his hometown club, saying in 2009 while Coventry City boss: 'Of course Swansea City is my heart. It's my home town club. I’m very proud of being from Swansea. But my mum and dad still live in Swansea. My sisters, both married with children, still live in Swansea.
'And I've seen, when it goes wrong when you're a manager it's your home town club and that's where your family's from; it's not nice and I wouldn't put my family underneath that pressure. If it went wrong it's not nice and I've seen it happen.’
