Former Swansea striker Lee Trundle is hoping to return to the club in a coaching role in the future.
The veteran forward is currently searching for a new club after he failed to earn the offer of a contract this summer, despite impressing whilst on loan last term.
However, the 33-year-old has told skysports.com that the Welsh club offered him a coaching post at the Liberty Stadium, which he turned down in favour of continuing his playing career.
"It was disappointing not to be offered a playing contract by Swansea, but they did offer me a coaching deal there," Trundle told skysports.com.
"However, I still have a lot of years left in me playing-wise and I want to get back to enjoying my football again. So, it was a great option for the future, but not for now.
"It is something that I would like to do after I have hung up my boots, as the coaching side of the game definitely interest me and as you get older you start to think about life after playing the game more.
"It would be great to return to Swansea in a coaching or even management role, but that chapter in my career isn't ready to be started because I still feel I've got a good few years left in my playing career."
