Graham Potter has been unveiled as the new manager of Swansea.

Potter, the former Stoke and West Brom defender, oversaw the rise of Ostersund from fourth to first tier during a seven-and-a-half year spell in Sweden and becomes Swansea boss following their relegation from the Premier League.

"I was happy in Sweden but for me it was about the right opportunity and Swansea City was that for me," Potter said at a press conference on Tuesday morning.

"The desire is to return to the old way of thinking at Swansea and this is a chance to start again and use relegation as the best thing that has happened to the club."

"I think the club has gone away from its identity to how they want to play," Potter said.

"But we want to learn from the experience of what has happened in the last two or three years.

"We want to build a team and a squad that are our supporters can connect with and are proud of. We need to be getting back to us and making the right decisions for this football club."

Lukasz Fabianski and Alfie Mawson have both been linked with West Ham and Potter says the club does not want to keep unhappy players.

"We need to assess. Any player who leaves has to go on the right terms for the club," Potter said.

"We don't want players who don't want to be here, we want players proud to represent Swansea."

On recruiting new players, Potter added: "There will be some money to spend. We need to add to the group and there will be some we move out to create space. We want people to help us play how we want to and have a stable group."
