Carlos Carvalhal has been hired as manager of Swansea City.

Carvalhal left Sheffield Wednesday by mutual consent on Christmas Eve.

Carvalhal succeeds Paul Clement, who was sacked a little over two weeks ago.

Huw Jenkins, the Swansea chairman, said: “We are very pleased with the appointment. We felt we needed to get the managerial situation resolved as soon as possible and while the timing is not always perfect, we can look forward to the second half of the campaign with renewed optimism.
