Swansea have named Graham Potter as their new manager.

Potter, 43, has signed a three-year contract after leaving Swedish club Ostersunds and will bid to guide the recently-relegated Welsh club back to the Premier League.

“Swansea City are delighted to announce that Graham Potter has been appointed as the club’s new manager,” read a club statement on their official website.

“Potter has (on Monday) signed a three-year contract at the Liberty Stadium after leaving Swedish club Ostersunds to take charge of the Swans.”

Potter told the club’s website: “It’s a chance to start again.

“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.

“I had an amazing journey at Ostersunds from a personal and professional perspective. People talked about me coming back to the UK quite often, but it was always about the right opportunity.”
