Bayern Munich’s Clement agrees Swansea deal

January 3, 2017

Former Derby County boss and current Bayern Munich assistant Paul Clement has agreed to join Swansea City as their new manager on Tuesday.

Clement, 44, has been in talks with Swansea over the last 24 hours to become the club’s third manager of the season and has agreed a two-and-a-half year contract.

Swansea sacked Bob Bradley, who succeeded Francesco Guidolin in October, after just 85 days in charge after the 4-1 Boxing Day defeat to West Ham.

Swansea, who started 2017 bottom of the Premier League, visit Crystal Palace on Tuesday and sources say that Clement will be in the stands for the game before taking full charge of the team on Wednesday.

Bayern announced on Monday that Clement would not travel to Qatar for the club’s winter training camp after they and manager Carlo Ancelotti had accepted his desire to speak to Swansea.

Clement had a stint in charge of Derby County last season but was sacked in February after their promotion hopes began to falter.
