Bayern Munich, where Clement has been assistant to head coach Carlo Ancelotti, confirmed the Englishman had been given permission to discuss the vacancy with the Swans.

And the 44-year-old has made a decision to leave his post as Carlo Ancelotti's assistant at Bayern Munich in favour of a switch to south Wales.

Paul Clement will become Premier League strugglers Swansea City's third manager of the season and will be officially unveiled on Wednesday, British media reported on Monday.

The likes of Ryan Giggs, Chris Coleman, Gary Rowett and Harry Redknapp were all subsequently linked with the top-flight post, but in the end it's Clement who is back in the dugout for his second spell in the managerial arena.

Alan Curtis is not expected to play a prominent role in Paul Clement's coaching set-up at Swansea, according to Sky sources.

Clement's imminent appointment has been warmly received by the Swansea City Supporters' Trust.

Only West Brom in 2004-05 have recovered from a worse position at the halfway stage of the campaign to survive, but Clement feels Swansea can defy the odds.

He's also worked under the Italian at Chelsea and Paris St-Germain.

Now, nearly a year on, Clement is set to return for his second stab at management with Swansea City.

"We were all in agreement on those criteria and hope Paul Clement helps restore the club's identity".

'Everyone connected to the club is fully behind the appointment and we see this a typical Swansea City choice.

Nigel Gibbs has been brought in as Clement's assistant, with the 51-year-old having been a number two at Reading, Leeds United and Millwall, while Karl Halabi joins as head of physical performance.
