Swansea City has agreed to personal terms and a compensation package with Ostersund FK boss Graham Potter, a move that draws them closer to confirming Potter as their new manager. The club have agreed on terms which include Potter bringing his assistant Billy Reid.

The move will be finalized next week in Swansea, according to BBC.

Swansea have been in search of a new manager since Carlos Carvalhal left following Premier League relegation. The deal also sees Ostersund recruitment analyst Kyle Macaulay move to south Wales.

The 43-year-old Potter led Ostersund from the regional tiers in Sweden to the top-flight Allsvenskan with three promotions, winning the Swedish Cup along the way.

Potter’s style since he arrived in January 2011 shows the manner in which his new club once shined in English football.

They have been described as producing expansive, possession-based football with a tactical flexibility.

A statement from the Swedish club said:

“The club wants to congratulate all three as they face new challenges.

“Because I knew how Swansea worked more than 10 years ago, I felt that such a project was intended for Graham.”
