Swansea City

Potter focused on long-term Swansea stay

18th April 2019, 21:00 by Tom Hill

Swansea manager Graham Potter says there is no truth in the rumours that are linking him with a move to Celtic.

The Solihull-born manager has enjoyed a decent first season as a coach in England following his move from Swedish club Ostersunds.

Potter has guided Swansea into a comfortable mid-table position, although the Welsh outfit look like missing out on the play-offs this season.

Celtic have yet to decide if Neil Lennon will stay on a permanent basis and this has led to speculation that they will make a move for Potter.

However, the 43-year-old wants to build a legacy at the Liberty Stadium.

He told BBC Sport: "I enjoyed my time in Sweden. I was stable and we made progress and I'm looking forward to the same here.

"You want the football club you are working at to improve and progress and you want the same for yourself.

"That's what everybody should be aspiring to. I have a job to do here and I am focused on that."
