Potter spent the majority of his playing career as a full-back, including in the Premier League for Southampton.

Graham Potter has been named Swansea City’s new manager as they attempt to rebuild in the Championship following relegation from the Premier League.

He has joined from Swedish club Ostersund FK on a three-year deal.

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

The 43-year-old has succeeded 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.”
