Graham Potter’s departure from Swansea means the club have to rebuild their recruitment structure once again.

Club legend Leon Britton will join a new recruitment board that will review and assess manager as well as player recruitment. 

The club have “considerable financial issues” and will have to sell the players earning the most in the coming transfer window.

Following Graham Potter’s exit from Swansea City, the club are planning to restructure their recruitment and scouting network as too much depends on the manager. 

In a long and detailed statement on their website, the Swansea chairman, Trevor Birch, explains his new plans for the club. 

"With the loss of Graham and his team we will take this opportunity to put in place, behind the scenes, an organisational structure that will bring stability and ensure continuity so that any future managerial changes will have the minimum impact," said Birch.
