Francesco Guidolin has been sacked as Swansea head coach and been replaced by former USA manager Bob Bradley.
The Swans have not won in the Premier League since the opening day of the season and are 17th in the table.
Bradley, 58, leaves French second-tier side Le Havre to succeed 61-year-old Guidolin, who was appointed in January.
Owners Steve Kaplan and Jason Levien and chairman Huw Jenkins spoke to several potential successors, including former Wales captain Ryan Giggs.
They were impressed by Bradley’s experience and character after meeting the 58-year-old, who has also managed Egypt and Norwegian side Stabaek.
Bradley will take over a Swansea side who have lost their last three league matches and find themselves clear of the relegation zone only on goal difference.
Guidolin had been under intense pressure and his sacking was announced on his 61st birthday on Monday.
Bradley’s first match in charge of the Swans will be away against Arsenal on 15 October.
