BREAKING NEWS: Swansea confirm Curtis as manager until end of the season

Updated: 

Swansea City have confirmed that caretaker manager Alan Curtis will remain in charge of the club until the end of the 2015-16 season.

Curtis has overseen first-team affairs since Garry Monk parted company with the club in December, following a run of one win in 11 Premier League matches.

Fourth-bottom Swansea have taken five points from as many matches under Curtis, with the 1-0 Boxing Day triumph over West Brom their only win to date under the 61-year-old.

Nevertheless, chairman Huw Jenkins and the board of directors have identified "improved performance levels" during this period and decided to extend his tenure.
