Former Besiktas and Sporting manager Carlos Carvalhal joined Sheffield Wednesday in June 2015

Swansea City are set to appoint former Sheffield Wednesday manager Carlos Carvalhal as their new permanent boss.

Player-coach Leon Britton has been in temporary charge of Swansea since the Premier League’s bottom side sacked Paul Clement on 20 December.

Carvalhal was dismissed by Wednesday on Christmas Eve, with the Owls 15th in the Championship table.

The Portuguese will become Swansea’s fifth permanent manager in two years.
