Potter to be tasked with mission of returning Swans to top flight

Graham Potter is set to become Swansea's sixth manager in four years after a compensation package was finalised with Swedish club Ostersund.

Englishman Potter has been in charge of Ostersund since December 2010, but the 43-year-old will complete a move to Wales early next week.

"Swansea City can confirm a compensation package has been finalised with Ostersund for the services of Graham Potter," said a statement.

Swansea's seven-season stay in the Premier League came to an end last month and they decided not to take up the option of extending Carlos Carvalhal's short-term contract.

Potter led Ostersund them from the fourth to the top tier, and they won the Swedish Cup in 2017.

He oversaw a 2-1 victory at Arsenal in the last 32 of the Europa League but they bowed out 4-2 on aggregate.
