Swansea City have confirmed Francesco Guidolin has committed his future to the club by penning a new two-year deal.
The Italian tactician was tasked with keeping the Swans in the top flight and 60-year-old was able to achieve that goal with games to spare.
Having guided Swansea up to 11th in the table, chairman Huw Jenkins was delighted to see Guidolin agree fresh terms in South Wales.
He told the club’s official website: “I’m pleased to confirm that we have reached an agreement with Francesco on a new two-year contract.
“Francesco fully deserves the chance to continue his good work into the new campaign. He was prepared to come into the club at such a difficult time and put himself in a pressure situation with the club fighting for survival.
“He has achieved the goal of securing top-flight football for this club with plenty to spare and has earned the right to start afresh next season. It’s going to be another challenge for everyone, but we are looking forward to seeing how far he can take this squad of players over a full season.
“We are confident that he can carry on the good work at the end of this season into the new campaign.”
Swansea end their Premier League campaign on Sunday when they host Manchester City at the Liberty Stadium.
The Swans are 19/4 to win, 7/2 to draw and 1/2 to lose to the Citizens.
