Francesco Guidolin is expected to be in charge of Swansea next season after the board did a complete U-turn and offered him a new deal.
The Italian looked certain to be heading for the Liberty Stadium exit door once his contract expired at the end of the season, with former boss Brendan Rodgers hotly tipped to take his place.
Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins and his board were also looking into other options to fill the soon to be vacant hot seat, but following a strong finish to the season, Guidolin is set to stay.
Guidolin has pulled Swansea out of relegation trouble with something to spare, and there is an outside chance they could finish in the top half of the table if they beat Manchester City on Sunday.
The club’s supporters felt that Guidolin deserved a chance to lead Swansea next season, and following lengthy discussions this last week, it seems that Jenkins and the board agree.
The length of the contract has yet to be revealed but Swansea will soon announce that Guidolin will be staying on as manager.
