Graham Potter has been named Swansea City's new manager on a three-year deal as they attempt to rebuild in the Championship following relegation.

Potter joins from Swedish side Ostersunds FK, with the two clubs agreeing a compensation package.

Assistant manager Billy Reid and recruitment analyst Kyle Macaulay will also move to south Wales.

The 43-year-old succeeds Carlos Carvalhal, who departed after they went down on the final day of 2017-18.

Potter guided Ostersund from the regional tiers in Sweden to the top-flight Allsvenskan with three promotions, winning the Swedish Cup along the way.

“It’s a chance to start again,” said Potter.

“We know how frustrating the last few years have been, but hopefully the relegation will be seen in a few years’ time as the best thing that ever happened to the club.

“We will try our best and work hard every day to give the supporters a team they can feel proud of; they can connect with and see are trying to improve.”

Analysis

Ostersunds FK chairman Daniel Kindberg: “He [Graham Potter] is a highly intellectual person, very warm, with a good sense of humour. His tactical aware and ideas of the game are absolutely top class.

“He is a genuinely warm person who strongly wants to win football games.

“He will not only take Swansea back to the Premier League, he will make the name of Swansea City bigger than it is today.

“The limit is down to the support he can get and if he gets enough he will do miracles.” (BBC)
