Swansea City confirm that a deal has been agreed for Graham Potter to take over as manager after agreeing compensation with Ostersunds FK.

Swansea City have confirmed that Graham Potter will finalise his appointment as their new manager next week.

The Welsh outfit have been looking for a new leader following the departure of Carlos Carvalhal last month.

Reports emerged claiming that a deal was in motion for the club to bring in Potter from Ostersunds FK, and now the Swans have confirmed it.

A statement from the recently-relegated Championship club read: "Swansea City can confirm a compensation package has been finalised with Ostersund for the services of Graham Potter.

"The club has also agreed personal terms with Potter along with his assistant Billy Reid and recruitment analyst Kyle Macaulay, who are set to join him at the Liberty."

Potter has earned three league promotions and the 2017 Swedish Cup during a seven-year spell at Ostersunds.
