Swansea City are reportedly close to appointing former Celtic star Morten Wieghorst as assistant to manager Michael Laudrup.

Laudrup's current deputy Erik Larsen will move into a scouting role to accommodate the appointment, according to PA.

Wieghorst, who played alongside the Swans boss in the Danish national team, currently coaches Denmark Under-21s.

Swansea first-team coach Alan Curtis is expected to remain in his current role should the appointment go through.
