Swansea have appointed Garry Monk as their permanent manager after a spell in caretaker charge.

The former defender has signed a three-year contract having been given the role of head coach following the dismissal of Michael Laudrup in February.

"We are delighted to confirm Garry as our new first-team manager," Swans chairman Huw Jenkins told swanseacityfc.net.

Monk will be assisted by current coach Josep (Pep) Clotet.
