Paul Clement has agreed to become the new Swansea City manager, signing a two-and-a-half year deal at the club, according to the BBC.

Clement will officially be unveiled as manager on Tuesday and will be in attendance at Selhurst Park during the Swans’ encounter with Crystal Palace.

His first game will then be away at Hull City in the FA Cup on Saturday and then faces his first Premier League test against Arsenal at the Liberty Stadium on the 14th January.

Having had previous coaching experience at Chelsea, PSG and Real Madrid, Clement left German giants Bayern Munich to take charge of the struggling Swans.

This will no doubt be the Englishman’s toughest challenge in his career, trying to keep a woeful Swansea side in the top-flight.

If he does fail to keep the Welsh side in the Premier League, it is believed that he will remain in charge for the 2017/18 season in the Championship.
