GARRY Monk has been appointed Swansea City manager on a three-year deal, with Huw Jenkins revealing that the club want to get "back to basics" under their new boss.
Monk has impressed Swansea's owners with his impact since taking the reins after Michael Laudrup was sacked at the beginning of February.
And he has now been rewarded for steering the club to Premier League safety with a long-term deal.
"We are delighted to confirm Garry as our new first-team manager," said Swansea chairman Jenkins.
"As a board of directors we carefully considered our next step because it was a very important decision for our football club.
"But having gone through that process, we unanimously agreed that the timing was right for Garry to be offered the job on a permanent basis.
"As we look forward to our fourth season in the Premier League, we all agreed that we needed to get back to basics and reinforce the principles that have brought us success in recent years.
"Garry represents all the strong values we hold so dearly as a football club and everyone is looking forward to working with him.
"We have all been impressed with his work-rate and commitment since taking over the reins in February and how he adapted in very difficult circumstances to secure the points we needed to remain in the top flight.
"Garry will work with the current staff to refocus and improve the playing squad over the summer in order to build a strong, competitive team for another big challenge that lies ahead next season."
Monk will be assisted by Pep Clotet, who had stepped up to the first-team coaching staff from his role in the academy following Laudrup's departure.
